CNET: Facebook seeks to redefine time with ‘flicks’

CNET: Facebook seeks to redefine time with ‘flicks’. “If Facebook gets its way, maybe the next time you want your friend to hold the door for a second, you’ll say, ‘Hang on for 705,600,000 flicks.’ Well, OK, you probably won’t. But you could, because Facebook introduced a new unit of time on Monday called the flick. The company thinks it’ll be useful for programmers if not for talking to your pal while you run back for your keys.”
