Fluidtime: synching time coordination and social networking.
The Fluidtime project wants to contribute to a society where people's activities flow into each other, where there is less waiting and more time for contemplation and idling and where people flow with their time and not against it.
We do this by stimulating debate, developing methods and creating services and tools for event based timing.
We want to link people to the 'real' time of events and appointments through interfaces that are simple and effective.
Time coordination, time personalities, social network roles, tools, event types, location and changes. Robert Levine: The geography of time. Clock time vs. fluid time.

A really cool project that I would love to learn more about, but I need to go sit in Liz's session on misbehaviour, or I'll get in trouble with the stronger sex.
