An article from Eater, on the Food Timeline that Lynne Olver developed. It is now looking for someone to maintain it. It occurred to me that this may be an appropriate project for eG, actually. If nothing else, it's a website that I think folks here will appreciate.

I've used it many times as a reference in food-related writing.

“Who loves a garden, loves a greenhouse too.” - William Cowper, The Task, Book Three

 

"Not knowing the scope of your own ignorance is part of the human condition...The first rule of the Dunning-Kruger club is you don’t know you’re a member of the Dunning-Kruger club.” - psychologist David Dunning

Pleased to bump this thread with a good-news followup: The same Eater writer reports that the Timeline has been taken over by Virginia Tech's Special Collections Archive.
