The Anticlock (v1.0)

I’ve been thinking about time a lot lately. If you think about it, we have a pretty dumb system. Problem is, the entire world has kinda agreed to use it, and we learned (or were indoctrinated into it) at such a young age that it’s really difficult to imagine a different system.

What normally happens is that people invent their own systems using the tools provided by our universal system. Entire cultures do this. What’s a 9-5? Why does it matter that it’s 5 o’clock somewhere? What’s the 11th hour? These phrases are all very clear to English-speakers, and they all reference very important milestones using terminology from our non-sensical system.

Anyway. For my day-to-day, this is nonsense. The only times I care what time it is are the times that I have to interact with the rest of the world. When I’m focused on pure output (which is very important to me as a maker of things), all I care about is how much time I have left.

So I made a thing. It’s a first stab at something much bigger, but it’s a good start, I think. It’s a Chrome extension that replaces the New Tab with a different way of looking at your day. Try it out. Maybe it’ll help you.

Get it here.
