Today, I learned about:
Once more, here we are, on the anniversary of my blog. And today, we are celebrating five whole years! Thank you all who participated on this journey, both those of you who read the first blog post and decided to stay and those who have joined me and my followers later on. THANK YOU !!!
There is a link to the very first blog post in reference #1 below.
It’s time to start a new way of counting the days!
As an anniversary present, I would like to make a proposal to make it easier to write dates. In my second blog post ever, I wrote about how different it is over the world, and although there is an international standard, which was adopted in 2004, there are few people that use it. If you are curious about how that standard is, look up the link in reference # 2 below.
I have had quite some ideas about how a new system for counting the days could be implemented, but what really made me going was a post on the Quora site, that I read some time ago. It was written in 2016 by an American professor named Dave Consiglio. Thank you, Dave, for your excellent ideas! See his thoughts in reference #3 below.
In line with Dave’s ideas, I created a way to write days that everyone could adopt, easily. You can see the notation in the headline of today’s post. Basically, it abolishes the inconsistent system of months and considers the year as the main unit for counting the time, subdivided only into 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year). Each day would consist of 10 subunits, named Planck, as a tribute to one of the greatest scientists of all times, Max Planck.
See my proposal in detail in reference #4 below and details about Max Planck and his works in reference # 5.
That’s what I learned in school today!
