This post (which was inspired by some of my Facebook friends) may seem off-the-wall but every trend or convention has to start somewhere. I know I’m not going to make any money off of these ideas so I might as well plant them here on the interweb and see if they take off. Perhaps one day I’ll get famous and be cited in Wikipedia. These are all original ideas from my brain. I apologize if somebody else has thought of some of these before me but I really don’t feel like doing research right now. If anything, then I’m promoting somebody else’s idea for them.
Short names for some tech items

Condensed Date Format with Day of Week
Format is DDMMYY so you must use two-lettter
codes for the month,
JA, FE, MR, AP, MY, JN, JL, AU, SP, OC, NV, DC
a space between each character like
1 7 A P 9 7
Put a “.” in the spot between characters that represents the day of the week.
The first space is for Sunday, second space is for Monday, etc…
Thursday, January 7, 2013 à 0 7 J A.1 3
Sunday, September 18, 2005 à .1 8 S P 0 5
Saturday, May 11, 1996 à 1 1 M Y 9 6.
Alternatively, you could use a DDMMMYY format with 3 letter month codes,
JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC
And designate dates like this...
Thursday, January 7, 2013 à 07JAN 1 3
Sunday, September 18, 2005 à 21SEP12
Saturday, May 11, 1996 à 11MAY96
Airline Travel Itinerary Designation
This is best described with a graphic from a spreadsheet that I use to make it. It nicely consolidates all the info you would ever want to know for an airline trip. (Click on the image to open up a larger viewable version or click on this link for an Excel spreadsheet file you can use as a template.)
Hope you get some use (or at least some entertainment) from this post.
