Analog clocks have always annoyed me, so I decided to make my own. This is the logical solution I think. There's only one hand, which moves round once a day and shows where the sun is on the map. In the photo it is nearly 10pm in the UK so the sun is over the Alaska timezone. The 6am-6pm line is your horizon, so the top half is your daytime.

This one is for GMT/UTC - you'd need to rotate the map for different timezones, to put your location at the top under the noon marker.

The map is an azimuthal equal-area projection, made with NASA's G.Projector: http://www.giss.nasa.gov/tools/gprojector/

I bought a 24-hour clock and simply inserted the printed map in place, after removing the minute and second hands.

Awesome idea, very geeky! You +Tim Hutton  should produce more of those and sell them (but not patent the idea, since patents are evil ;) )!

I think Linkedin is developing a sense of humor. I was endorsing some people I know when it asked me this.

It's also been known to ask whether Linus Torvalds knows about the Linux kernel.

I designed a game called Pivit that just went up on kickstarter. It's an abstract game for 2 to 4 players that is built to support emergent complexity, a little bit like chess or go. If you enjoy puzzle-solving mixed with a little creativity, I think you'll like this game.

We're looking for another designer at Medium. Someone well rounded but strong on visuals would be ideal. Anyone know interested people they'd recommend?
