When time is up, the coordinator will ring a bell, blow a whistle, or clink a glass, at which point the participants switch seats to meet the next person.After the “daters” have done a full rotation and met one another, each individual will write a list of who he or she would like to see again.This Arts Tech Speed Dating event is an inaugural opportunity for New Zealand's artistic, science and tech sectors to come together and innovate, using their collective skills and knowledge to kick-start us exploring the potential for New Zealand to lead the world in Arts Tech and transform each of these art forms for the twenty-first century.
Another factor is the earth's "moment of inertia", a concept like mass but related to rotations rather than linear motion.
Try this: spin round on a swivel chair, then spread out your arms and you will notice that your rotation slows.
This has units of 1/time, and is commonly quoted as milliseconds per day per century (ms/day/cy).
Universal Time is a time scale based on the Earth's rotation, which is somewhat irregular over short periods (days up to a century), thus any time based on it cannot have an accuracy better than 1 in 10.
However, there are subtle couplings related to deformations of the planets, which is why for example the moon rotates so that one hemisphere is always visible from earth.
By a similar mechanism the earth's rate of rotation could also change.
It is a formalized process in which the participants are broken up into pairs and rotate partners every 3-8 minutes (depending on the event).
Each pair sits down and gets to know one another, or “date”.
