That's not an answer when the stakes are so high...

What you need is an interface which will let you know - intuitively - 
how "far away" from somebody elses "time" you are. Just noticed how some 
people put their timezone in their Skype name, and just read about a 
famous danish branding guru who does not carry a cell phone because 
people never know in which time zone he is - as he travels the world.
You need to know - for each individual - what timezone, and how 
available they are - for instance if you want to arrange an online meeting.
So how about a visual clue - a blending of color shades to indicate that 
this meeting time will be ok with MOST participants - and be unhealthy 
for only a few?

Maybe we should take this somewhere else - it is conceptualizing and not 

>>> nnected world, something has to be done, and take steps to do it.
>> So let's see some of the renowned Drophead geniuses solve it!
>> There must be a business model for this.
>> 2c for every time anybody in the world uses "Drupalmanac" time would
>> generate more $$$ than Bill Gates has - in just a few days (drops).
> Has been tried before and never took off, even without asking for money.
