A Web service developed by Microsoft Research lets people curate their own personal history. Greenwich, a website that helps users assemble and chronologically organize content about a person, event, or any other subject. The site, to launch in beta on October 31, allows users to archive uploaded items, such as photos and scans of objects, alongside links to existing Web content around a horizontal timeline marked with dates. Different timelines can be combined and displayed on the same page or merged. Project Greenwich users attach images, maps, and other visual content, plus accompanying text, to relevant dates on their timelines.
