Been checking out visualizations for personalized timeline

Testing out this visualization for browsing an activity stream. What do you guys think?

I like the controls, and the way that time is very clear in the visualization (so you can see which days at a glance are more or less active, and you can see the order in which items posted and read them in relation to each other). I also like that you can clearly see where things were posted. I'd like to be able to filter by location posted. Maybe also by whether or not there's a link in the item (because when there's a link that's typically a different kind of post than when there isn't one).

I also really like the timeline. It really gives more of a sense of time with these controls.

I'm less sure about the filtering controls you're talking about, but I would like to have a search method over this timeline, and be able to visualize how often I talk about Apple vs. Google vs. Microsoft, for example.

I also want to turn this timeline into a personal curated magazine that others can consume, a la Storify.
