it's even worse: there is a watch called Nettime!
Seriously, Isn't this a bit over the top? It is a very smart marketing ploy, but I don't see any way to take this seriously. Clearly they just _paid_ CNN to put internet-time on their homepage. As the smallest unit of time in swatch internet time is about 1.5 minute, and it is based on the BMT (Biel Mean Time), it is nothing more than a good joke. What if this had been a project of one of the net.artists? Would it still have been as suspicious?
