Our current project deals with various ways of visualising "time".

I believe the idea of "slicing" time into descrete portions as somewhat perverted. Meaning, i prefer an analog to a digital clock.

(A combination of this was the great "After Dark" Screensaver, where the digits "morphed" into each other: creating a neverending flow of time.) What a brilliant idea. Analog and digital at the same time!

As we all have heard of the "Overview Effect" my idea for a Desktop clock is a little "Overview Effect" for every Mac User: A rotating earth on the desktop, showing current time and timezones. Digits help beginning Users.
