Effective use of timeline: Arab Spring

I think this example of a time line is the most impressive I have seen yet. A fully interactive  (3D time line!) is a novel concept. I like how the scrolling slider on top and the nav scroller on the side essentially slide the events towards the viewer. Additionally each nations arrangements appear as though they are being pulled off an assembly, possibly signifying the manufactured tools of revolution gaining prominence in our world.  Each of the markers that represent regime change, political moves and internal and external pressure have links to the story on the The Guardian newspaper. I believe that such designs will become invaluable tools for  historians, social news commentators and other individuals that are interested in this field.
