Hewitt vs. Hyatt re Y2K

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

We'd discussed Steve Hewitt (editor of Christian Computing Magazine and star of stage, screen, and Wall Street Journal) in a thread a while back. Here's an article from the Kansas City Star about a recent debate between Mr. Hewitt and Michael Hyatt (author of The Millenium Bug, among other books).

Hewitt vs. Hyatt

One of the writers scored the debate for Hewitt. Think I'll just wait until after Rollover before I fill out my scorecard...

If Neville Chamberlain had debated Winston Churchill in early 1939 (Topic: "Is that little Austrian with the funny mustache a threat to European peace?") I'm sure the press would've reported it as a victory for ol' Neville.

Whenever the entire audience is hoping and praying that one side prevails in a debate, they usually don't listen too much to the details.

So the Kansas City Star has a weekly "Y2K Watch" column. If onyl other newspapers would follow suit. Here's another interesting bit from the column:

[BEGIN CUT AND PASTE} City leaders, businesses and neighborhood associations will meet Tuesday for a session titled "Jan. 1, 2000: A Day in the Life of Kansas City."

Sponsored by the Silicon Prairie Technology Association, the conference features author Meg Wheatley, who will talk about individual and community contingency plans. There also will be a panel discussion with local bankers, utility representatives, lawyers and city officials.


Seems Kansas City residents will be in the GI category long before many others.
