The Null Device
A chap calling himself The Human Calculator has a plan for the betterment
with a 13-month "Human Calendar" with 28 days per month.
Once it is in place, the improvements in efficiency will be great: weeks and
months will be finally synchronised, with paychecks and holidays falling on
predictable dates, and schedules and calculations will be a lot simpler.
He has tried to sell this idea to the authorities who wield influence
over the way we keep track of time (i.e., Hallmark and Microsoft, and not
popes and emperors), but they haven't returned his calls.
Perhaps he should talk to Swatch, and hope to get it accepted as an
extension of Swatch Internet Time (then again; maybe it's not daft enough an
idea for that).
