AJAXified Timelines

I was trying to look up some way to present some data to a client when I stumbled upon this AJAX widget by SIMILE project run by a group at MIT. The group works on semantic web technologies and besides Timeline, has tools like Babel, to convert data, and Exhibit, which is a publishing framework.

Timeline allows you to create simple scrollable timelines using an XML or JSON data source using their javascript and some very simple and highly customisable options. Do check out their websitewhich has some pretty cool stuff using their tools.
