Dipity timeline streaming January 20, 2009

Posted by Michael Kowalski in design, user interface.

This is pretty neat: a continuous scrolling timeline of aggregated content culled from the usual suspects (twitter, flickr, etc). The UI looks a little fussy at first glance but works well in practice. Clicking any bubble in the timeline pops more detail (eg. a video player) in an overlay. 

I expect we’ll soon see a number of retrospective lifestreaming tools taking this kind of approach. So rather than requiring you to consciously push input into some lifestreaming app, the app will just discover it from the “pixel trail” you’ve already left across the web (and maybe your desktop too).
