10 09 2010

I get so confused sometimes about the dates on  documents because of the different date formats – mainly because in Australia we tend to use DD/MM/YY, whereas in the US the standard is MM/DD/YY. Some years ago I came across the use of the  Internet Date Format ISO 8601 and thought it would useful to start to use this format as the standard for the date. There is some good information about this issue on the International Date Format Campaign website.

My mission now is to get all of my social media and web content updated to reflect this format – no small task. 😉
