Toss out your calendar -- we're living on Tulsa Time

Gonna set my watch back to it
Cause you know I've been through it
Livin' on Tulsa time

We previously pointed out that the Relationship Economy is a place where totally new paradigms will produce totally new actions and reactions. The message was that our networks can help us make better use of our time, but ultimately we could not turn-back time.

I knew they had some great offerings at Google (I especially like the email, docs, and Grand Central), and just yesterday in two separate conversations referred to a Google product (the calendar in a call about Jiffle and Gmail in a conversation about the new social networking catalyst Xoopit.

But this takes the cake!

You gotta see Gmail Custom TimeTM!


What do you think?
