The long and winding Road
It’s been just over a year since we made our first designs for Histropedia. Too much has happened to talk about it all here, we would need a timeline for that
Layouts, feature and product descriptions may have changed along the way but our message has not,
“The world needs a better way to view and compare its history”
History belongs to us all, it is our past and sets the path for our future, if we cannot understand our past we cannot see our future.
Creating Histropedia is about more than making a timeline; its about creating the tools to allow us to easily view and compare history.
Jimmy Wales founder of Wikipedia said their main goal is to “make all the world’s knowledge available to all the world people for free”. They’re doing a fantastic job and shown us that given the opportunity there are people with a passion and desire to share knowledge.
Histropedia is building on this foundation of knowledge, using it to not only share the world’s knowledge but use it to tell the story of our history from the big bang to the present day.
We cannot do this alone, nor should we. Its everyone’s story we are trying to tell so everyone should be able to have a say in how its told.
