CIAO! a possibly topical acronym : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

The Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office (CIAO) --- announced by President Clinton in May 1998, will facilitate the creation of a national plan to protect the services that we depend on daily: telecommunications, banking and finance, electric power, transportation, gas and oil, emergency services and government services.

Probably an unintended pun....

-- Tom Carey (, April 18, 1999


I checked out the CIAO web site and it appears that no new information has been posted since January, 1999. No press releases, no reports... nothing. Has anyone else heard anything about CIAO and what they are up to these days?

While we're on the subject of acronyms, what about Operation Allied Force? Strange pick indeed.
