Update: Inspired by a friend, 270909 should be “put your plans into action” day.

Life plans can be the hardest things to decide on and stick to, but if you’re ever going to change a situation, having an exit strategy is a great start. Procrastination can be overcome if today, 270909 we all take steps in the direction we want to go.

Well, still alive and nothing bad has happened this morning. The 9th September 2009 sees a milestone date 090909.

The web is full of references to this special date and how to mark it’s passing. eHow.com has a great article by Michael Skinner on “How to Celebrate”

1.Think of your place in the Universe.
2. Think of home and your local environment.
3. Connect items 1 and 2.
4. Enjoy the day!

There’s a worldwide cyberformance, live theatrical and online performance festival – Upstage 090909.

Upstage 090909

Performances across the globe via the upstage platform I’m told. Check the Upstage 090909 site for timezone details.

Another organisation has decided that this day should be World Day of Interconnectedness.

The site states “On 090909 in every country at 9 AM in every time zone (starting in New Zealand), all people who are aware of interconnectedness and who are committed to translate that awareness into action are invited to practice interconnectedness as much as possible throughout that day.”

Let me know if anything odd, great or terrible happens during this 24 hours.

I came across 27.com today. The site uses a unix-ish interface, but is actually Google Shell (goosh.org), using Ajax.  The results from simple searches are quite useful and very quick, like google without the ads, images and other extras.

Fun, all the same.
