What is Time?

This probably went unnoticed last year, but you may have heard something about it over the summer, when it finished, (that’s when I heard of it anyway).

xkcd # 1190 was an extremely slow moving movie.  In total, it was 3,099 frames that updated every half hour, or hour for the following 123 days.  Set 11,000 years in the future in (what’s left of) the Mediterranean , it chronicles the journey of two characters  as they try and figure out why the sea is rising, and then how to survive it.

If the above 40 minute video is too much (after all, you did just spend an hour watching time being made earlier this week), then you can scroll through the frames at your own pace over at Geek Wagon.  Regardless of how you end up watching it, you should watch it in it’s entirety, it’s worth it.  If you want to get the gist of the story, then head on over to Explain xkcd.

Either way, watch it, and let’s see if Randall Munroe has anything in store this year.
