John Travolta Timeline

This Sunday, acclaimed actor-singer-dancer-pilot John Travolta turns 64. Born on February 18, 1954, Travolta dropped out of high-school at age 17 to pursue acting, and he’s since led a long and varied career in show business, being known as one of the most multifaceted stars of the 70’s. With the popular performer’s birthday just around the corner, let’s take a brief look at his life and work.

The John Travolta Timeline illustrates significant events and achievements in the life of the actor, including some of the most renowned movies and TV shows he was involved in.

Travolta’s breakthrough moment came in 1975 when he played the role of Vinnie Barbarino in the TV series Welcome Back, Kotter, after which he continued to rise, landing lead roles in hits like Grease and Saturday Night Fever. After a significant lull in the 80’s, the actor made a career comeback starring in Tarantino’s masterpiece, Pulp Fiction, which earned him a second Academy Award nomination and brought him back into the spotlight.

Youtube History Timeline

Youtube History Timeline

Today, everyone’s go-to video-sharing site – and the source of endless procrastination for many of us - is celebrating its 13th birthday. Set up in 2005 by three former PayPal employees and originally intended as a dating service, YouTube has grown to be the second most visited website in the world after Google, now boasting over 15 billion visitors per month. To wish the giant video website a happy birthday, we have put together a timeline of memorable moments throughout its history.

The YouTube Timeline illustrates the site’s evolution since its inception to present day. The graphic runs through the company’s major achievements and feature releases, including a few interesting milestones such as the first video uploaded or the first known instance of Rickrolling.

Considering the type of broadcasts that are regularly going viral on YouTube, one might think the first video ever posted on the website must have been something insane. Well, it’s actually a very short clip of co-founder Jawed Karim standing near some elephants at the zoo and describing their “really, really long trunks.” The video is appropriately titled “Me at the Zoo” and has since been viewed more than 45 million times.

The Youtube chronology was created with Office Timeline, a flexible PowerPoint add-in that enables users to quickly generate timelines, Gantt charts and other similar visuals for business or academic presentations. To update the graphic or build new ones effortlessly, we recommend Office Timeline Plus Edition.

Jules Verne Timeline

Jules Verne Timeline

February 8, 2018, marks 190 years since the birth of Breton science fiction pioneer Jules Verne. Widely regarded as a visionary writer, Verne contributed over 50 romans scientifiques that were unlike anything written before – or since – and which have inspired generations of inventors, scientists and explorers. To commemorate the author’s 190th birthday, let’s take a journey to the past and explore his life and work.

The Jules Verne Timeline lays out some of the events and milestones in the life of the French writer, including a few of his most renowned novels. While Verne is acclaimed in most of Europe as one of the 19th century’s major authors, he does not enjoy (or hasn’t until recently) the same reputation in English-speaking countries, where he was often seen as a mere writer of children’s books. This happened largely because the early English translations of Verne’s work were flawed, to say the least, often bearing little resemblance to the original writing.

The translators repeatedly watered down the author’s texts, cut out descriptive passages (even 40% of the original), committed ludicrous mistakes, or rewrote sections that conflicted with their political, social or religious views. These poorly-written English versions of Verne’s work were widely reprinted (and can be still found in print today), making the novels seem like nothing more but trivial adventure stories with no literary value. It was only in the 1960’s that American scholar Walter Miller compared the standard English translations to their original counterparts and recognized the damage that was done.

The Jules Verne chronology was built with Office Timeline, an easy-to-use PowerPoint add-in that builds beautiful timelines and Gantt charts for academic or business presentations. To edit the image fast or create similar ones effortlessly, we recommend using the Plus version of the add-in.

Facebook History Timeline

Facebook History Timeline

On February 4, 2004, Mark Zuckerberg launched a social website called “The Facebook” from his dorm room at Harvard. Soon, what started as a private network for college students became a worldwide phenomenon, everyone from teens to grandmothers using it to catch up with friends and get their news. As Facebook is turning 14 this Sunday, here’s a look back at some of the milestones that helped shape the social media behemoth we know today.

The Facebook History Timeline illustrates important events, achievements, and releases in the history of the social networking platform, from the day the service was launched to its 14-year anniversary.

Released in February 2009, the “Like” button is probably one of the simplest Facebook features, but it’s come to be the one that defines it. This makes it a little surprising that Zuckerberg kept giving it a thumbs down when the concept was proposed, determining the team to consider it a “cursed project.” The idea of an approval button first came to life in 2007 under the form of the “Awesome” button, but it took almost two years until it was finally launched, as the CEO was worried it will overshadow the Comment and Share features.

The Facebook chronology was built with Office Timeline, a fast and intuitive tool designed to help users create eye-catching Gantt charts and timelines effortlessly. The image is free to modify and share and can be edited or customized further with the Plus version of the plug-in.

Lego History Timeline

Lego History Timeline

This Sunday, the Lego brick turns 60! Children and adults worldwide have played with Lego sets for the past six decades, and the famous toy bricks are still as craved as they’ve always been – and just as feisty as ever despite the ripe age, as you may notice when accidentally stepping on one. The Lego brick hasn’t changed in appearance from the day its well-known design was patented, on January 28, 1958, but it’s certainly come a long way, steadily turning the Lego Group into one of the biggest toymakers in the world. To commemorate the anniversary of the world’s most beloved toy, let’s take a look back at how it all started.

The Lego Timeline illustrates major milestones and achievements in the history of the company, including the year founder Ole Kirk Christiansen started manufacturing toys, the day the modern stud-and-tube design was patented, or the introduction of the minifigure. In 1916, carpenter Ole Christiansen bought a woodworking shop in Billund, Denmark, where he manufactured stepladders and furniture. Faced with a lack of carpentry jobs because of the Great Depression, Ole soon started to produce miniature models of his products, which inspired him to create toys, thinking they were less expensive and could actually sell. Soon, he renamed his company as LEGO, and the rest is history.

The Lego chronology was built with Office Timeline, a light but powerful tool that plugs into PowerPoint and enables users to easily build eye-catching visual schedules, timelines, Gantt charts and other similar graphics. To edit the image or create new ones fast, we recommend using Office Timeline Plus edition.
