Note to self: Figure out a good way to (once again) write about the concept of the International Date Standard or International Date Format. It's an important subject that should be talked about more as the world gets smaller and we all get more connected. It's also quite a boring subject. A real yawner. Seriously… Hmm. Perhaps I could tie it in with the date of September 9th, 2009, since that will help demonstrate my point (with the 9/9/9). I don't know, though, that seems kind of … pretentious. This is going to be tough.
