  Logarithmic scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A logarithmic scale is a scale of measurement that uses the logarithm of a physical quantity instead of the quantity itself.
Logarithmic scales are either defined for ratios of the underlying quantity, or one has to agree to measure the quantity in fixed units.
The base of the logarithm also has to be specified, unless the scale's value is considered to be a dimensional quantity expressed in generic (indefinite-base) logarithmic units.

A logarithmic timeline is a timeline laid out according to a logarithmic scale.
Logarithmic timelines have also been used in future studies to justify the idea of a technological singularity.
A logarithmic scale enables events throughout time to be presented accurately, but enables more events to be included closer to one end.

 Logarithmic timeline - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
A logarithmic timeline, based on logarithmic scale, was developed by Heinz von Foerster, the philosopher and physicist.
He was attempting to create a table of historical data, and realised that the closer to the present he got the more events he could put in the table.
He therefore developed the logarithmic timeline in order to shrink the information in such a way that the same density of information was preserved, whilst at the same time allowing him to accurately show the whole span of history.

Logarithmic scales give the logarithm of a quantity instead of the quantity itself.
The base of the logarithm also has to be specified.
In the last two examples large values (or ratios) of the underlying quantity will correspond to negative values of the logarithmic measure, because of reversal of the scale by a minus sign in the definition.

John Napier noted that multiplication and division of numbers can be performed by addition and subtraction, respectively, of logarithms of those numbers.
The engineers in the Apollo program to send a man to the moon made many of their calculations on slide rules, which were accurate to 3 or 4 significant figures.
While producing the first logarithmic tables Napier needed to perform many multiplications and it was at this point that he designed Napier's bones.

 Design rationale of logarithmic timeline
So when I read about Heinz von Foerster's logarithmic timeline, the specs for a Web version were basically predefined: 1015 lines of under 64 characters each, plus as many links as brought the total to 100k.
Unlike the rest of the timeline, these are obviously subjective, but on a logarithmic scale this seems defensible.
Maximising diversity was a goal, because the timeline makes a better object of contemplation if it brings together lines of thought that are normally segregated.
