The Quadrennial Manifesto

It is the continuing belief of Infinite Art Tournament that Leap Day, by virtue of its uniqueness and its inherent interest as a matter of Earth-Sun geometry, ought to be a international holiday in celebration of our common humanity, our mathematical and scientific achievements as a species, and our eternal connection to the sun and to the seasons.

The IAT imagines a full-blown festival with its own branded color scheme, civic and family traditions, handful of beloved seasonal songs, spike in air travel fares, and long commercial and media rollout. I encourage you to get the ball rolling in your own community.  2020 is right around the corner.

In the meantime, may I again be the first to wish you a wonderful Leap Day and a healthy, happy, and prosperous next four years?

Also, my condolences to all of us on an annual salary who are working for free today.
