ISO Date Format   Leave a comment

Yesterday’s XKCD comic alerted me to the fact that I’ve doing dates wrong:

Since 2000, I’ve used four-digit years, as I don’t want to relive that mess. My wife agrees: we’re teaching our daughter that. I wasn’t aware of the ISO 8601 standard for dates. However, it makes sense.

I’ve reset my blog to use that date format. The new challenge: can I get into that habit when I have to enter a date by hand? For that matter, will I remember when I write a date in a notebook?
