Have you heard about the 10,000 Year Clock?

It’s a special Clock, designed to be a symbol, an icon for long-term thinking. It’s of monumental scale inside a mountain in West Texas. The father of the Clock is Danny Hillis. He’s been thinking about and working on the Clock since 1989. He wanted to build a Clock that ticks once a year, where the century hand advances once every 100 years, and the cuckoo comes out on the millennium. The vision was, and still is, to build a Clock that will keep time for the next 10,000 years…Visiting the Clock will take a commitment. The nearest airport is several hours away by car, and the foot trail to the Clock is rugged, rising almost 2,000 feet above the valley floor.

Our World Clock Project is back in action, thanks to some improved code work by our intern, Anthony!

We’ve set out to collect as many pictures of clocks as possible from as many different people as possible from around the world. Our goal is to gather enough pictures to account for all the minutes of the day.

Got any clocks you think should be on our site? Tag your photo with the appropriate time (e.g. 5:35) and then add your photo to the World Clock Project Flickr Pool - it’s that easy to join in the fun!
