Tantek Çelik — ‘NewCalendar’

Faced with both a burgeoning microformats task list and an irresistible desire to procrastinate, Tantek has apparently spent most of the past bim fixing time itself.

Rather fascinating summary into the formation of the calendar, months and weeks along with a more mathematically perfect calendar that pretty much makes sense in every way. In fact, the only really jarring issue I have with Tantek’s work here is the ‘New Monday’ naming convention he adopts.

Perhaps it’s an easier development issue to cope with for me, since I wouldn’t have to change the date of my birthday.
