singularity is near book
‘The Singularity is Near’…very by TheAlieness?GiselaGiardino

Stowe Boyd notes that on Wednesday of this week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06. Woah.

As such, on this moment of singularity, I’m proposing that we blog exactly what we are doing at that precise time! When you do so, title your post as “010203040506” and let the fun begin! I’m Digging it!

Aside: For those of us living on the other side of the world (e.g. Singapore, UK), Andrew notes that your time will come on 4th May. Now we get two memes for the price of one!

  1. Also this moment isn’t singular at all: It will happen every 100 years, as long as you represent the year with two digits.

    It will happen again in 2106, 2206, 3006, 4406, etc pp.

  2. I sent an email to my friend which stated:
    This email was sent at 01:02:03 04/05/06
    It was actually recorded as sent by my email program at :05 seconds, so I was off by 2…. dagnabit!
    Prior to that I was writing a script for an animated show to make a deadline. Which is probably why I used the exclamation ‘dagnabit’.

  3. Wer’e high and we’re going laugh when 01:02:03 04/05/06 comes around. Yay! Happy 01:02:03 04/05/06!!!!!!!!!!


    Congratulations on a blog-spherian indirect Ray Kurzweil Advertisement, just Perfect for our era.
    (does the publisher know?)

    Whole, Perfect and Complete.
    One moment to acknowledge, each moments entire uniqueness.

  5. And my upside caclulator says ShELL OIL .
    But where will I be at 12:34:56 07/08/09
    Now can I go to bed?

  6. Well its 01:02:03 04/05/06 and I’m still here and the universe didn’t implode. Just finished Kill Bill Vol 2.

  7. At @ 01:02:03 04/05/06, I pressed my face up against the window, gazing out into the street in front of my favorite pub. Nothing exciting appeared to be happening.. So I once again began to focus my attention on something more important.

  8. 010203040506

    Let’s see: got up from a few minutes prior to the event, took a snapshot from the NIST site and crawled back to bed.

  9. Well, I left my ISE lecture with about 1 hour to go, headed to the uni bar and started drinking. At exactly 01:02:03 04/05/06 I finished my 07th beer. 7 beers in an hour == pretty damn drunk. And I had class after that, and an exam tommorow. w00t!

  10. That’s also assuming a 2 digit year format. I noticed you haven’t mentioned it on your blog but others have pointed out that this will “never happen again”; except that it has happened in 1906 and 1806 and will happen in 2106, etc…
    I’m all for the meme, tho…

  11. With the 24-hour time format turned off, I am choosing to honor the centenial singularity of 01:02:03PM 04/05/06. I will be eating a tuna sub with all the fixin’s and tobasco sauce. I give that a singular, “Yum!”

  12. my mom woke me up this morning and made me find this so i’m glad this is one of your topics…ThAnKs!i!i!i!

  13. Well…I missed 01:02:03 04/05/06 last night(early morning) by about 10 minutes and today in class I missed seeing it on the clock again by about 20…yay!!

  14. Today is my birthday and what a cool thing to have happen- it must mean it is a very special bday. Loved reading what everyone was up to!

  15. additionally, we just had another…

    at 7:08:09, it could have been considered 040506070809 a.m. or pm….

    Everyone have Good Days ALL ways…
