Timeline of the history of information: 2,500,000 BCE through 2014 AD…!

Timeline Outline View

2,500,000 BCE through 2014…!

“This timeline of the history of information has some outstanding rabbit-holes: multiple entries on the history of magnetic card readers, Plimpton 322 (a cuneiform tablet called “the most famous original document of Babylonian mathematics“), and a whole series on crimes, forgeries, and hoaxes. The most developed entries and companion essays are on books and the book trade (the proprietor is an antiquarian bookseller), and the whole thing has got a noticeably Western Civ slant, but there’s something here for everyone.”

Worth playing around in just for it’s broad view of what information has looked like over the years!
