Euripedes, the Greek playwright, once observed that time would explain it all. It was a poetic suggestion, yet to date, remains somewhat inconclusive. True, the passage of time might be said to characterize everything from the Mexican migration of Monarch butterflies to why former House majority leader Tom DeLay resigned from Congress, but let's face it: that hardly explains it all.
Sometimes, though, a poetic view offers a welcome respite from the more obligatory demands of timekeeping that seem to dominate contemporary life. And so, consider this: tomorrow, Wednesday April 5, 2006, at two minutes and three seconds past 1:00 A.M., the time and date will be as follows: 01:02:03 04/05/06.
This won't happen again until 2106. At that time, we will be sure to note it here on Design Observer.
