Newslines was started by Mark & Mary Devlin. Mark created Newslines to learn about how different events developed. The first Newsline was a timeline of the 2012 Benghazi Attack, which grew to over 100 items and became the definitive timeline of that event at that time. The site officially started on May 1, 2014.
Mark and Mary are from Scotland and lived for 18 years in Japan where they created Metropolis, Japan’s No. 1 English magazine and Japan Today, the No. 1 news and discussion site about Japan. They live in Glasgow, Scotland.
