Could use some eyes on this chart

I've been working on this chart for awhile that has to do with my
comic. It supposed to explain some large events that happened in the
story via time travel. I could really use some more sets of eyes on
this thing, because it's driving me crazy!

It's also an exercise in information design for me, so it's not
just for fun. It's my first real attempt at info design in fact.

Anyway, I'd like to see if people can make heads or tails of it
without any explanation from me. I would love any comments, pro or

SurveyGizmo and popups for customer satisfaction survey?

I have not implemented these on a site, but my experience with them as
a user has been very negative. The "Would you like to take a
survey?" dialogue immediately calls to mind every time I've ever

Interaction Designers in Indianapolis?


I'm investigating interaction design as a new career path, and I'd like to
meet with someone who is already doing it professionally. Is anyone out
there in the Indianapolis area?


Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is
noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if
anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think
about such things. - Phillipians 4:8

Remote (with SMART Board) vs. Face to Face Design Sessions

I'm working with a team based in another location.  The product owner and I are trying to bring down one of the developers down for a collaborative design session.  We're at an important juncture and really need to hammer out some important design questions.  This developer has a focus on UI development and a rich background in human factors.

In January, I went up for a week to work with him and then then product owner.  We spent most of the week in a conference room with a whiteboard and were extremely productive since we played well off each other.
