Live this Thurday, 29 April, at 1pm BST [I think that's 0800 EST] http://www.bugnetwork.com we proudly present an exclusive live interview with Karl Feilder, President and CEO of Greenwich Mean Time, advisor to the British, South African, New Zealand and Australian governments and all round Millennium Bug Guru! GMT are a global company founded in 1996 to investigate the year 2000 challenge as it effects PC's and PC Networks.
As one of the first people in the world to recognise the desktop challenge and the first to focus exclusively on it, Feilder's in-depth authority on the subject is unrivalled anywhere in the world.
Feilder returned from a tour of Europe last week expressing dismay at the lack of progress of most European countries have made on solving y2K problems.
"Europe is at least two years behind Britain," he said. "I'm shocked and concerned at the lack of serious attention most countries are showing this problem. The British government needs to make a greater effort to get its trading partners taking action."
The interview will be conducted by John Ivinson, Vice President of Professional and Public Affairs at the British Computer Society and Consultant to Action 2000.
