UTC is Enough for Everyone, Right? (zachholman.com)

It turns out humans have had a long, long history of poorly dealing with time, so when you hammer your head against the wall trying to deal with a timezone bug, well, you’re just the last in a long, long line of human beings that are terrible at all this! Congrats. You’re pretty unremarkable.

The author talks about long history of time and how horrible we have been dealing with time. To solve this problem in programming, we need to make it as simple as possible and leverage standards (e.g. UTC, ISO 8601).
