The project sounds interesting. Just one problem, it is one year too early. The year 2000 is the last year of the old Mellineum. The year 2001 is the beginning of the new one.

Perhaps it's just nine-hundred and ninety-nine years late for the start of the last one...

Regardless of what year is concerned, this sounds like another chance for someone to make money off of our work for free. Sounds like the new millennium is going to be a lot like the old millennium.

-- Marv Thompson (, May 23, 1998.

Regarding the Millennium: there are two (2) versions: 1. The 'Celebration' Millennium happens on January 1, 2000. 2. The 'Academic' Millennium happens on January 1, 2001.

But I don't think a year early is too soon to ask for entries in a Millennium photo-documentation. Gives us more time to plan, right?
