Heads Up: Senate Hearing on National Y2K Information Coordination Centergreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
For those who haven't been checking in lately, the U.S. Senate Special Committee on the Year 2000 Technology Problem Website has become a disaster in the past few days.
They've revamped it and it isn't any better. It's worse than the original site which was revamped a couple of months ago.
Regardless, (and I apologize if this has already been posted) in a routine check tonight, I realized that a new hearing has been added to the mix (to precede the utilities hearing, which will be the last hearing before the Congressional break in August)
JULY 29 -- National Y2K Information Coordination Center 9:30 AM, Room 192 Dirksen
This could be an important one.

No the Senate can't copyright anything prepared with public funds. Do you think they are taking private donations nowadays? WEll, I know they are... That is truly odd as hell.
