Last week, as I was looking for good websites and twitter users to follow the students’ movement in Quebec, its support by and links to the other worldwide opposition movements, and to try to assess how it could evolve, I found this really useful, informative and beautiful website displaying a timeline of the events done by Xavier K.

You can include videos and photographs, and, compared with the two others that were previously tried, you can create as many timelines as you want, which is a great advantage.
Here is the result:
