Ken, I can't believe you used the words "Big Dog" and "analysis" in the same sentence without giggling...

An excerpt from Peter de Jager's "The Question of Italy: An Analysis"
Like yourself and everybody else I am trying to understand what happened. While it is still too early to be doing this analysis, month end processing must still take place, I find myself compelled to provide some answers to the legitimate question -- why were places like Italy not impacted by Y2K.
The question goes deeper than just why Italy and others escaped the problem -- the other part of the question is why I and everyone else who worked on the problem are so adamant that the problem was real and that we took the correct and proper action.
You could place a gun to my head and threaten to pull the trigger unless I told you the 'truth' that the problem was NOT real -- and I would steadfastly refuse. I KNOW, with every fibre of my being that we were right. Nothing can shake me from that belief.
And therein lies the glaring contradiction I struggle with. My view of the problem is contradicted by a fact I cannot refute, and make no attempt to, Italy has seen no significant effects.

Having taken an interest in Mr. Lipton as a ....study subject, I feel I can accuratly predict that he will disavow his doom position, claiming he NEVER believed that a ten was probable or even possible.
Aside from claiming that the US would be in chaos by july 2000, here is a quote that proves Russ didn't take ANY stock in BITR thinking AT ALL:
BTW, we are long past "interpretation" necessity with pre-Y2K, anyway. "Right action" is full-scale prep, finishing by August 1 at latest. See "dancr" post on Faryna's "Milne goes 10" thread for superb example of right action based on transparency.
.... in a best case (BITR, ha!), she has some nice antiques, maps and some fabric ....

I just want people to be aware of the way this thinks, and the way he usually operates. However, after 18 months of "spin" and shilling for Yourdon and Co., I would think it would be apparent to all.
