U.S. Daylight Savings Time Changes, 2007

The U.S. Congress passed the Energy Policy Act in 2005, which takes effect in 2007. DST will start three weeks earlier and end one week later than what had traditionally occurred. This is really interesting to me. Not only is time itself interesting, but we have issues of policy changes, time changes, politics, software, people, perceptions, weather, and so on. Who knows what effects this will have in the future?

Anyway, Microsoft is preparing with a special web page with info about preparing for the 2007 DST changes. I don’t really have time to look into it right now just because there’s so much to read (such as the excellent article on How to Start a Startup), but I will look at it someday I’m sure.
