Carmichael and Frautschi: y2k week 51 #18 : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

http://www.critt.c om/cw/week51.html#EMBEDDED: The latest version of my paper contains the update on counter overflows I mentioned previously, a correction from 0.01 % to 0.001 % in citing a GartnerGroup study and an update on the Crouch-Echlin effect.

http://www.critt .com/cw/week51.html#struggling: Many people in positions of leadership and authority are struggling for a coherent strategy for responding to y2k: they are asking "what are the goals, the vision, the means, the organization?" cw/week51.html#local: our work is to help local markets emerge, make them honest fair and fun, not to treat people and communities as though they need our services as providers to dependents. /cw/week51.html#skills: And of course local skills of organizing, negotiating, leading, caring, will much more valuable.

http://www.critt.c om/cw/week51.html#politics: The emergent reality here in the y2k story is politics. m/cw/week51.html#cit2con: It turns citizens who own their government into consumers who are dependents. m/cw/week51.html#plywood: The problem I see all over the world is the plywood effect. We are a society of glued together layers. The top has a view, but instead of being organically related to the bottom, it is organically related sideways. cw/week51.html#Legal: Legal implications of y2k

http://www.cri The following by Cynthia Beal is so important I want to quote at length. "One item I've seen go virtually unaddressed is the challenge people have when asked to "follow instructions". cw/week51.html#Agree: helps explain some of the anxiety about the forces behind y2k ideology, and the tendency towards polarizations.
