"What's your ideal date?"

"ISO-8601"

@bgcarlisle Miss Congeniality 3: She's Gotta Infiltrate the Nerds This Time

@bgcarlisle and my idea of a perfect time is either local time without any form of DST, or the standardised UTC. ;)

@FiXato @bgcarlisle

I've adopted the use of a "z" in as the hour-minute separator to denote UTC, eg, 02z08 rather than 02:08Z.

@epoch @bgcarlisle RFC3339 is just a profile of ISO-8601 with a subset of its functionality ideal for the Internet. It's not really a competitor to ISO-8601, it's a flavor of it.
