Re: <nettime> net.times, not swatch time

it's even worse than that: to blur that they stole the idea from (or was it the other way around ?) they claim

'Swatch, victim of an armed robbery - Swatch, victim of a grey market
watch dealer'

But their perestroika of time will fail.... it's too late. generations of
programmers have made a living from the bugs our times produce. Our world
does not want to become simpler - it wants to be more complicated. Not
surprisingly their shares have underperformed

I would propose local solar time.... like saudi arabia used to have. It
could accelerate sales for GPS systems and you would know one thing more
precise than now: noon is at 12:00 and midnight at 0:00
