Hey, check out Anil Dash’s cool tabular calendar, summarizing the history of his blog. I liked it so much that I made one, too. Hmm, I can think of lots of different ways to organize it, will have to try some alternatives. Thanks, Anil!

Another more compact option would be <a href="http://justinsomnia.org/2005/04/monthchunks-howto/">monthchunks</a>.

In "When", the months go from top to bottom, but on the pages for individual months, the days go from bottom to top. This confused me.

I like the idea. Flipping the axis would provide more room for years of expansion.

Seems like a good visualization for things where the number of items per month varies, or there may not be any. What about tying in tagcloud-style text-weighting?

Are you opening your data to swivel? :)
