Irish Times Article on Working Patterns and Circadian Rhythms

An article in today's Irish Times describes the work of the "B-society", a group dedicated to making working practices more in tune with people's circadian rhythms.

I wonder are people's circadian rhythms exogenous? I don't know what mine are but I start work rather early to beat traffic, get a car-parking space etc. So I think I have become an A- person starting well before 9.
If you could get some biomarkers for these rhythms it would be interesting to correlate with affect, exam performance, car crashes etc.

An interesting point raised in the article is the potential for social gains from using common resources (such as transport networks) at different times of the day.
