“A Moment in Time”
There’s nothing like a global “all hands on deck” to get me out of bed early in the morning. Tomorrow (May 2nd) at 15:00 (U.T.C.), there is an opportunity for you to do the same and get involved with a global project started up by The New York Times. It’s called “A Moment in Time“. You’d think somebody has been watching too much FlashForward. (Actually, they admitted it’s not an original idea)

1. Calculate your time. Visit World Time Server, select 15:00 (U.T.C.) and then May 2nd. Then find your location. It automatically figures out the time this event occurs at for you. For those of you in Washington State, plan for 8:00 a.m.!
2. Tomorrow, the clock strikes 8:00 a.m.. The time is upon us! Take a picture of your surroundings and be sure to describe what is going on around you.
3. Visit The New York Times, “A Moment in Time” to submit the photo. I’m not sure what the submission form is going to be like but it should be self explanatory.
To learn more about the project, The New York Times has provided a list of F.A.Q.s
I can’t wait to see what everybody submits. I know at 8:00 a.m., they’ll either get a picture of my alarm going off or me trying to hike my way downtown for Save the Moon, or battling the Bloomsday crowd.
My submission taken at 8:00 a.m.! Special thanks to my tripod.
