A lot of people seem to believe the site will be up this month, but I'm hoping that we will see it before Spring.

Hopefully in 3-4 weeks. Maybe a little longer. But we're definitely getting close now.

 

Once I've finished the redesign of FT, I can use that as a template for PT, which is going to save masses of work.

3-4 weeks! Sooner than I thought! I look forward to seeing the new site, whenever it may launch. :D

Well, wjfox did only say "hopefully" in 3-4 weeks. Just be patient.

Will past timeline focus on science and technology developments like future timeline or will it focus on something else, like, for instance, historical events?

The future timeline also covers "historical events", such as 9/11, so I think it definitely would be appropriate for the past timeline to as well.

What about everything up until now (15/02/2014), shouldn't your posts be in the past-timeline section when you launch the site?

 

How do you plan on moving posts to (pasttimeline.net) that are no longer in the future?

How past timeline is going?

 

BTW did you noticed, that time seems "slow down" (methaphorically speaking) past point of Earth's formation?

That would be around 9 billions years after Big Bang.

Earth's formation is one snapshot of the continual, exponential evolution (i.e. your avatar) of information that has characterized the universe for its entire history.  The "six epochs of evolution" described by Kurzweil and others exemplifies this well:

 

Epoch 1. Physics and Chemistry

At the beginning of the universe, all information existed at the subatomic level.
 
Epoch 2. Biology and DNA
With the beginning of life on Earth, genetic information was stored in DNA molecules, and yet organisms takes [sic] thousands of years to evolve. 
 
Epoch 3. Brains
Evolution produced increasingly complex organisms. The birth of the brain allowed organisms to change their behavior and learn from past experiences.
 
Epoch 4. Technology
Humans evolved into organisms with the ability to create technology. We are right now in the final stages of this epoch.
 
Epoch 5. The Merger of Human Technology with Human Intelligence
Biology and technology will begin to merge in order to create higher forms of life and intelligence.
 
Epoch 6. The Universe Wakes Up
Theis epoch will see the birth of super-intelligence, and with it, humans/machines expanding into the Universe.

Note that the time between each epoch decreases exponentially.


Humanity's destiny is infinity

I heard about that. I was talking about something else - how history timeline was written.

I can't really do much with Past Timeline until the redesign for FT is complete. Thankfully, great progress is now being made on the latter! :)

 

I plan to take a week's holiday in early April, during which I'll be devoting almost 100% of my free time to both of these projects.

 

Basically - when FT is relaunched, PT will follow very quickly soon afterwards. It will be a simple case of duplicating the templates from one site to the other.

 

So yeah... my current best estimate:

 

FT relaunch = early/mid-April

PT launch = late April

Great to hear!
