Something to read after you've been to

IEEE Y2K Chairman's Personal, Pessimistic Take on Y2K and Yourdon's End Game Paper

Do you think that just because you "found" this that it's news? Marianne Michaels has been writing a book on the entire Y2K experience. What you've posted is Chapter 2 of that effort. Chapter 4 was recently posted to her TP Chronicles site.

I think that her effort to represent the fear and uncertainty surrounding the whole "what will happen?" question before the rollover is a fine endeavor. It offers, through the use of humor and various "pundits" opinions, a pretty concise record for us to study. Hopefully, we can learn from it and begin to understand the polarizing force the issue had.
