The introduction is biased. Clock synchronization is much older problem than computer science; for example, it led Einstein to some of his theories. The need to have synchronous clocks was a major problem for cartographers and navigators in determining longitude since the 15th century. This needs to be rewritten to reflect a much more general and older heritage Intersofia 12:49, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

I don't think that the links for software sources for clock synching really belong here, the would be better placed in the article for NTP. --Androsyn 19:23, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

New article needed[edit]

This should be a disambig pointing to two separate articles:

  1. synchronization (computer science)
  2. synchronization (relativity), with redirect from Einstein synchronization

In the latter topic, monitor for possible POV-pushing edits by User:Carl Hewitt (who has caused a huge amount of trouble in the past). ---CH 00:50, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Added GPS mention[edit]

I added a mention of the GPS, which is copied from the GPS article along with it's reference. If anyone knows more about this, feel free to add.. Jimw338 (talk) 18:52, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
