n 0 Time - A Network Screen Saver 2001 (Personal Project)

n 0 time is the amount of time that none of us have. n 0 time always grows, especially in a new world of globalized network communication, in which time zones become meaningless and the most important asset is no longer time, but attention.

The n 0 time screen saver runs on an idle computer, constantly contributing that computer's amount of wasted time to our central n 0 time database. Screen-saving participants contribute their own n 0 time to either their very own n 0 time bodies, or those of other people. This is called "n 0 time-sharing." Measure how long you have been away from your computer by watching how much denser the n 0 time body has grown.

When a noTime body implodes, all participants are notified by the imploading screen saver via email.
