There is no "AD", you just write positive numbers from times after the epoch began and negative ones for before.

Oh and the event is when we got our shit together enough to just start counting every second for the rest of forever.

After Unix Time - time as understood by most computers
After Ford - marking society adopting assembly line mass production
After Sputnik - marking beginning of space
After Colony - marking construction of space colonies
After Earth - new time-keeping standards abandoning Earth-dependent units like 'day' and 'year'

I'm just going to throw this out there, I know this board will probably think it's pretty wild, but I'm going to say the Singularity will be the only event humans living thousands of years from now will see as any way significant from our era and may become the new year zero (other options as near corollaries to it; the invention of the first steam engine to start time at the Industrial Revolution, or the publication of Bacon's Novum Organum, the start of the Scientific Revolution.)

One can only hope. At present, we skip counting a second once a while to keep our clocks synchronize with Earth rotation's non-constant speed. This whole Leap Second thing is a giant headache.

I mean clearly time has it's uses. It's a basic function of the universe and a unit variable in pretty much every thing we do. Chemistry. Racing. Going to work.
