New Year Tricks

In One Year and Out the Other

On New Year's Eve, make a telephone call from one time zone to
another to conduct a conversation between people located in two
years. After midnight, call the other way.

I was also delighted to notice that some imaginative activists in France staged a demo against the new year - calling on the French government and the UN to call off 2007: time is moving too quickly, 2006 is fine as it is, let's have a 'moratorium on the future' etc. Perhaps this will spread into a global movement for Slow Time? The clock of the long now, in another guise?
