Amazing But True: Stephen Spielberg A Doomer ....greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
This just in, courtesy of the New York Post (April 7, 1999), from Liz Smith's stalwart gossip, oops, news, column, titled today,
"Y2K is not OK"
[we skip to the meat ....]
"Stephen Spielberg has faced down Nazis, space aliens, sharks and dinosaurs in his time. All very bravely, behind the camera. But he is afraid of something. No, no, not Harvey Weinstein! Spielberg fears Y2K, the computer glitch that some fear will devastate us when the year 2000 rolls in. The director told Roger Friedman in the May issue of Premiere magazine,
'I think it is Nostradamus' final prediction come true. I think all the odometers in all the cars, especially the young cars, are going to roll up to 90,000 or 100,000 miles.'"
There you have it. Now, the question is: will someone PLEASE take a look at all those young cars before it is TOOOOO LAAATTTEEE! You see, there are lots of little robot-gerbils in that-there odometer that are not compliant and .... well, you get the picture.
In all the annals of how one becomes a GI, this certainly ranks right up there near the top. That Nostradamus was a real car-freak.

I guess we can consider Stephen a tech guy? <:)=

Yeah, but Spielberg is a BIG Clinton buddy....
If'n Steven was afright of Y2K, wouldn't his hero and king assuage his fears during their multiple fund-raising dinners?
Or perhaps Mr. Spielberg was privy to info from king Slick that they're not telling the rest of us?......
