The trends timeline was a research task on interactive media trends from the past to the present. We done this task to gather an understanding on how trends are born in the interactive media industry and if there are any trends happening at the moment. I found out that usually trends start when a new product is released, for example smart phones became popular when Apple released their iPhone. I also found out the origins of each trend as well. I do feel I could put more information on the timeline but I did not have a lot of space to do it.
