UTC

With my body fighting off an infection induced through losing an entire hour of my life (thanks to Daylight Saving Time), I've been contemplating giving that hour away forever. Yeah, I don't want the hour back - Universe, you can keep the hour. But here is what I want.

One Time Zone

I want to have one time for everyone on this planet we call Earth. Instead of getting up earlier all of a sudden, we could keep our rhythms going and have no sudden changes.

What this means for me

I guess it means when someone says they want a lunch meeting at "Noon" local time, I want a universal translator that will hear "Noon" UTC, and not local. For me that might be 1800 UTC. Regardless, it would be a translator to know when I needed to be somewhere and it would work for everyone. Everywhere. That's what I want. Now to create the iPhone app that does the translation for those who are slow at math or for me when I'm short an hour of sleep.
