This blog’s dates follow the Hungarian convention, which I hadn’t seen actually used elsewhere before: yyyy/mm/dd. This is the right convention, since it means written dates can be sorted correctly as strings.

Similarly, Hungarian names, almost uniquely in Europe, have the family name first. This is consistent with the date convention: most general information comes first, and that’s probably what you’d sort on. (I won’t say that’s the right convention, though, since I prefer Mathcamp’s sorting by first name. :))
