Well... that depends on where in the world you live. =)

I believe that it was August 4th in the U.S. of A., though.

If you've examined the timestamps on the posts here on Get Satisfaction, you should note that all timestamps are London, England time (GMT 0).

(You can get down to the minute by hovering over the text that says x seconds|minutes|hours|days|weeks|months|years ago.)

Seattle, where Zoom.it was developed, is GMT -8 (Pacific Standard Time), so if you subtract 8 hours from any timestamp that you see on Get Satisfaction, you'll know what time it was on the west coast of North America when that Get Satisfaction message was posted.

The first two topics posted in Zoom.it's section of Get Satisfaction are listed below with the time that they were posted:

2010 August 4th 06:02 PM, Seattle time: Will Zoom.it work with GigaPan images?
2010 August 4th 09:00 PM, Seattle time: Introducing... Zoom.it! And a new API, too.

Also, here are a few of the first tweets about the site:

2010 August 4th 05:47 PM, Seattle time: Live Labs
2010 August 4th 06:34 PM, Seattle time: Bill Crow
2010 August 4th 11:24 PM, Seattle time: Aseem Kishore
