Put The History Of Time In Context With A Click Of Your Mouse

There’s nothing to spice up your Monday like getting a feel for how insignificant of a speck you are in the grand scheme of the universe. Here Is Today does just that, but in such a pretty, minimalist way that you won’t even mind.

HereIsToday.com is a single serving site that does exactly what it’s name implies. With each click of the mouse, the little block of today-ness gets recontextualized and rerecontextualized into bigger and bigger swatches of history until the ribbons of colour include just the slightest notion of human existence.

You’ll get the whole experience in just a few seconds, but it’s sort of fitting that way. It’s a worthwhile blip in the grand scheme of your day. [Here Is Today via Reddit]
