Celebrating The Epoch Second

Today, February 13, 2009, at exactly 17:31:30 (Central Time), Unix time was equal to '1234567890'. Parties and other celebrations were held around the world, among various technical subcultures, to celebrate 1234567890 day.

I was home, with the kids, when it happened. Snapped a ghostly image of the exact second. Froze it in time. 1234567890. One brief moment where we all celebrated the same heartbeat.

Grabbed a screenshot of it from:
