The World Clock Project

Intrigued by all the different kinds of clocks around the world, the boys at Iridesco have created a wonderful and interesting online photo gallery that anyone can contribute to: The World Clock Project. (Iridesco is Danny Wen and our friend Shawn Liu, and they do our website.)

As you'll see on the Project's website, there are plenty of minutes still to be accounted for with a picture of a clock showing that time. So take your digital camera to the streets and photograph the great clocks in your neighborhood!

Their idea is simple, fun, and community-spirited:

"We find it intriguing to see a picture of a clock that is located thousands of miles away, but one which tells us the exact time of where we are right now. So we've set out to collect as many pictures of clocks as possible from as many different people as possible from around the world.

"Our goal is to gather enough pictures to account for all the minutes of the day. Upon accomplishing that, we will create a "digital picture clock" for the community."

Nice idea, and an elegant way of reminding us of how we're all connected. Can't wait to see the finished product!
