When you aspire to design from anywhere the way we do at Automattic, it’s important to know the time of day that your colleagues may be experiencing. I’ve been trying a lot of services over the past few months to get a good handle on “what time is it for you?” and am always on the hunt for better ways to manage a completely remote design team.
So when Ola Bodera pointed me to everytimezone.com it made happy. It makes a lot of sense at a quick glance.
Other popular ways to stay in sync with folks you might work with remotely are:
- timeanddate.com: It’s super complete but it’s a bit too much for me on some days.
- thetimezoneconverter.com: The simplicity of the design is quite appreciated.
- Living Earth Desktop: An OS X app that is super 3d fancy.
- /tz for Slack: A Slack bot that feels smart but you’ll need your thinking cap.
And that’s all I’ve got on time, for now. —JM
Nice finds via my post on Twitter:
- Miranda: for iOS a nicely designed magical app.
- FlagTimes: Sitting in the OS X menu bar
- worldchatclock.com: Lets you look across timezones for a reasonable time.
