The dawn of clockwatcher

Part resting place, part sounding board, clockwatcher is my online repository for thoughts on time -- mine and others'. 

My interest in time encompasses topics such as marine chronometers, monasteries, railroads, newspapers, vaudeville, still photography, the Futurists, splitting the atom, stopwatches, the labor movement, the Industrial Revolution, the microwave oven, TiVo, cell phones, alarm clocks, efficiency experts and the Slow Food/Slow Cities movement. 

Through this blog, I hope to explore these ideas and more, and get your input along the way. 

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. 
-- Carl Sandburg
