First, a clarification:
GMT: that’s the current time in Greenwich, England. Since England observes Daylight Saving Time (DST), that’s not the same as
UTC: Coordinated Universal Time (or UTC) is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. It is within about 1 second of mean solar time at 0° longitude, and is not adjusted for daylight saving time. It is effectively a successor to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
Since UTC is universally the same everywhere, time zones are specified related to UTC, and that’s what we’ll follow.
So… I’m planning to host a BYOB* hangout on Sunday evening, 20:00 UTC. That’s 21:00 in the UK, 22:00 in the Central European Timezone, and 1 PM in Arizona and California.
It’s a bit of a bitch to our APAC members… Monday morning, 06:00 in Downunderia, and 05:00 in Tokyo.
Who would be in?
If you are, please specify if you’d prefer Zoom or Skype.
If Sunday sucks or is too short notice, we could move it to another day as well.
I was initially suggesting that we might think of a theme. On second thought, I think “getting used to our new hangout” (and guiding each other along) might be a good theme…
