evan’s new wikiclock

In a brilliant use of wiki technology, evan has launched the wiki clock, which uses the wisdom of the crowd to maintain an up-to-date, anyone-can-edit, clock. I just checked the clock, and the time was wrong. In the old days, I would have just moved along, thinking “what a crappy clock.” But, because it is a wikiclock, I was able to easily edit the time so that it was correct. Anyone can do the same.

Some will say: “But this clock will often be inaccurate.” But the point is, 1. it is free, and 2. eventually, with enough editors, this clock will, on balance, often have the correct time.
