The essential guide to IT transformation

They sure take the Year 2000 issue seriously in Phoenix, Arizona. According to Y2KNET this week will see the first of a series of Y2K preparedness events to be held in the Phoenix area. The two day Phoenix Town Hall meeting will have singer Pat Boone as master of ceremonies. Boone, it says here, "has been actively involved in helping families become prepared for the Year 2000 Computer Crisis. Committed to raising public awareness of this global problem, he was quoted in the January issue of Vanity Fair as saying, ‘It’s time to bring Y2K to the dinner table.’" Hot stuff, no? But Pat’s a pretty appropriate MC - never mind Y2K-compliant, we don’t reckon he’s even 1980s-compliant. He’ll be dealing with a glittering panel of stars, including the show-stopping author of Electric Utilities Y2K, the producer of the Y2K Family Preparedness video series, and the founder of Y2K Women. Funnily enough, attendance is free. But we’re a bit disturbed to learn that women might have some kind of Y2K compliance problem.
