Tim Webster just interviewed the person responsible for Sydney’s New year’s Eve fireworks display. After hearing the interview I have a theory about what we will see on the Harbour Bridge.
During the interview he mentioned something about “a new way of counting down”, and when asked what would be on the bridge he responded that he couldn’t tell us, but it would have “something to do with time…a timepiece”.
My theory is that the bridge will be used to countdown, either with fireworks set to form the various numbers from ten down, or possibly with a clock in which the second hand will light up with fireworks as it counts down to midnight.
I was planning to sit in bed and finish reading Stan Zemanek’s book on New Year’s Eve, but then I realised that I will be working until midnight. I will therefore be able to avoid seeing any of the fireworks (I’ll be ensuring that my TV Tuner is at home), and will count out the last five seconds of 2007 and the first moment of 2008 with the top of the hour time pips on 2CC.
