Using Adobe Flex as front end and Ruby on Rails as backend technology, here it comes Timetoast, a new web 2.0 site that you should keep an eye on.
From their press room:
LONDON, England - April 22, 2008 - Timetoast, the new web-based timeline
creation application, launches it’s service to the public today.
Timetoast.com is a web application that allows people to create interactive
timelines, which they can share anywhere on the web. Anyone can join and
start creating and sharing their own timelines, all they need is a valid email
address. It's also completely free.
Timetoast.com was built on top of powerful open-source frameworks and technologies
such as Ruby on Rails, MySQL and Adobe Flex
You don't even need to sign-up if in case you want to check the public timelines. However, you would need to fill in a small form (only 4 fields) to become a member and start creating your own time-lines.
By default your timelines will be saved as "drafts" that later on you can change this status into "public" allowing the world to see them.
One of the cool features is that there's RSS feeds everywhere! even each timeline has its own feed; this is great if in case you want to create a mash-up application or let's say widgets showing these data...
So, if in case you want to track a project, share the story of your life, your dog, your relationship... or tell others what you know about your favourite artist using a timeline, go and sign-up.
