Objective of the project is to provide the user with an understanding of history that is incomparable to reading pages of dates and disconnected chapters. We aim to do this by introducing two dimensions that, in a typical school book, are difficult to get a sense of: time and space.
Once we shift the focus from the page to the map, we find out that things 60 pages and 3 books apart are actually happening at once, and how far they are, and how all the strands are ultimately
woven together. We understand the background to a painter or a composer's magnum opus; we scoff at the maneuvres of one general while appreciating those of another; all while
somewhere else something has just been invented, or a land discovered (so to speak). And we get a really good look at what kind of double crossing weasel Hitler was.
A number of subjects, deemed particularly suitable for the platform, are currently under consideration for testing:
The project is ideally a crowdsourced effort, somewhere between StackExchange, Wikipedia and Reddit.
