I’ve blogged about metric time in the past, but it’s nice to see that I’m not alone.

There are many more details about metric time in this guide than I managed to squeeze into my old blog posting, so it’s well worth a read.

Be aware, though, that he’s only advocating metric units to replace hours, minutes and seconds, while I’m in favour of replacing weeks, months and years as well.

Best of all, he has a page with JavaScript clocks that you are allowed to adapt for your own purposes, so I’ve modified one to show the complete day and time decimally – have a look at the top of the right-hand sidebar.

It feels so much more tangible when you can see the metric seconds ticking away, doesn’t it?
