I think he is using the European date standard, which is day-month-year
so that would be August second.

For "day month year" there should be dot used as a separator: 02.08.2011
- for "month day year" - a slash: 08/02/2011
- for "year month day" - a hyphen: 2011-08-02

No more ambiguity!

How about we adopt the "Worldwide Computing Standard" which is Year-
Month-Day. In ost of East Asia Y.M.D is standard.

How about giving at least three letters of the name of the month?
2 Aug. 2011. Then (nearly?) everybody will be able to figure out what
you mean.

That helps a little by avoiding the month/day confusion but asking
everyone to learn the English month abbreviations won't ever get wide
international support (nor should it) and supporting lots of languages
makes processing dates hard. YYYY-MM-DD is the way to go if you want to
avoid confusion while permitting simple automatic processing.

OK, smilie noted, but the Y10K problem comes from mistakes in the way
dates are stored, not in how they are represented as numbers.
YYYY-MM-DD was not meant to suggest you somehow restrict the year to
four characters; it's a shorthand for at least four digits.
