A.I. = Artificial Intelligence, was my first thought. Blush

If we use AI now, what will we use when artificial intelligence is realised ? Consider

We won't be using anything.

We will have been Terminated!

I suggest that AI should start from the same date to make it more consistent.
Well, it would surely make it easier to adopt, and since it is nevertheless an arbitrary convention, ease of adoption is a great factor to be taken into account.

I like the ARPANET date because I find its first message meaningful, but I'll be happy with any reference date that does not remind me of the lord thing jesuschrist thing.

Cheers!

Speaking on behalf of the Internet, don't invent any more new time standards. We have plenty complexity enough already.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Most people use CE (current era) and BCE (before current era) AFAIK. Doubleplusgood because the year numbers stay the same *and* the Christees (well, some of them) get pissed about how those sneaky government agents are secretly making us *even more* godless, thus bringing the date of Armageddon ever closer.

You may be right, computer viruses are artificial and clever little bastards, and they are not a thing of the future.

What about AIP, for Internet Protocol? Or the A can be dropped and implied by the use of a negative sign in dates before the internet, making now sometime around the year 45 IP (44 UX, 564 APP).

Thoughts?

That's probably true in your surroundings. In my surroundings, people still talk about dates before and after the christ thing.

In my view, changing the reference date is a way of saying "I don't buy your bollocks".

Speaking on behalf of myself, thanks for your remark. But counting the years past from a conventional reference date is not inventing a new time standard. I'm not making up new complex rules, simply suggesting a different reference date.

You can count your years in relation to whatever reference date you'd like, I'll count my years in whatever reference date I like. Can you please ask the internet if it is happy with that?

Thanks!
