How come all the time stamps are Pacific Time? Because Peter Robinson and Rob Long live in California? I live on the east coast, shouldn't I be able to change my time preferences? (I haven't found the option.)

Ricochet is founded and headquartered on the West Coast, so it just seemed natural.
I have plans to use Facebook-style auto-updating relative timestamps, when I get the time to do it, no pun intended. These will say something like "3 minutes ago," "a few seconds ago," "4 hours ago" and so on, as they do now; but the plan is for them to update automatically as time passes, even if the page is not reloaded.
As for setting your own timezone, that could perhaps also be done naturally by using your computer's clock and system timezone.
