WHERE'S..... ED'S....... SPEECH?

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

Ed asked for advice on what to say during tomorrow's presentation.... and that he would post his "rough draft" on his web page...

I can't find it.... Is it there?

Also... will this hearing be televised on CSPAN? Will it be accessible live on the INTERNET?

Enquiring minds want to know!

I'll be posting the written testimony early Tues morning. Will post the oral testimony sometime Tues night or Weds morning.

Ed posted last week saying that he was changing his mind and following advice to present his testimony for the first time at the hearing. He said he will post the testimony on the forum immediately after it's presented to the subcommittee.

The Ed Hisself said:

"I've just arrived here in DC (late Sunday night), and am planning to attend John Koskinen's press briefing Mon AM, where he will apparently be "rolling out" the governmental initiative for community Y2K awareness. Have heard various rumors, but not sure of the details.

Also still trying to whittle down the written testimony that I've prepared for the Tuesday hearing into five cogent minutes. Will post the written testimony on my site on Tuesday.

Thanks for your good wishes ...
