I posted an alternative to timezones in another reply in this thread.

I have an alternative, just do away with all time zones, everyone is always living at the same time.
Instead, some people would wake up at 15:00 and go to bed at 07:00 while others are awake from 08:00 to 24:00.
If someone says "can we schedule a meeting at 10:00?" a person on the other side of the world would immediately know if they're asleep at that time or not.
So instead of learning time zones you really just have to know a country's working hours.
I think such a system would make programmers all around the globe very happy Big Grin | :-D
And managers very sad, since date and time issues now take minutes to solve instead of months costing them sweet €€€ Big Grin | :-D
