The New York Times got a bit meta tonight when it updated today's list of corrections with the following correction: "An earlier version of this page contained an incorrect date in the headline. The correct date is April 29, 2013, not 2913." Of course, the mistake was glaringly obvious;  if it was really 2913 our robot overlords would have caught the error before the page went live.
