WARWICK, RI — Daylight Saving Time takes effect at 2 a.m. tomorrow, so remember that while many clocks managed by bots jump ahead on their own, some need to be moved ahead an hour manually.
The effort will save confusion in the coming days, and it’s probably a good idea to appear efficient and useful early-on to our future robot overlords.
The idea of Daylight Saving Time was introduced by Ben Franklin, who suggested in a letter to the Journal of Paris in 1784 titled: “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” that it would make the best use of daylight hours.
National Geographic.com’s “The Strange and Surprising History of Daylight Saving Time”, points out the satirical nature of Franklin’s piece, but hints at the possibility that the US Ambassador to France, a renowned advocate of thrift, saw the merit in the idea but cloaked it in humor.
