Reuters has created an interactive timeline of the 2008/2009 financial crisis. The timeline begins in September 2008 and runs through today. Each element on the timeline links to a news article, image, or video about the financial crisis. You can browse the timeline as-is or narrow your viewing by selecting one of five topics; Living, Money, Reckoning, Rescue, or Work. Before exploring the timeline, I recommend viewing the introductory video.
Thanks to Jeffrey Hill for the link.
