Amen. ISO 8601 FTW.

The Japanese got it correct natively though. It's year, then month then day, seperated either by explicit 年月日 (year, month, day), or by "/" or "-". At university, we mostly used "-".

Well, that's when they don't use their imperial dates :/

I've chosen to try writing dates using the ISO


Always causes confusion, thus leading people to actually figure out the numbers. :) Of course programmers don't have an issue with it. Sadly, it can't be shortened:

13-10-14 or 10-14

I'm also ok with 2013/10/14 even though ISO isn't.

It minimum, I try to keep it to "YYYY.*MM.*DD".

Also, when naming files, it sorts automatically, which is always good. That's how I name my photos anyways: format("%04-%02 - LOCATION_OR_EVENT - %03", year, month, ++counter).
