Dear Nick (and everyone else),

I'd be interested in any suggestions for ajaxy type stuff we can use for 
   doing the user interface for microfacts [1]. Core needs are 
displaying temporal and geographic dimensions of data (plus probably 
some way for displaying multiple strands/narratives at once).

As a start I've been playing around with the simile timeline widget to 
work out how we can post JSON to it:


Immediate next steps could/would be to:

   * mock up a backend domain model to provide a bit of data
   * Customize the look and feel of the timeline. For example I've been 
wondering (but haven't yet worked out) whether it is possible to display 
the timeline vertically rather than horizontally
