POSTSCRIPT: This website was frozen on December 31, 1999, as a permanent document on how all of us acted and reacted to the Y2K myth from 1997 to 1999. There will be no updates. Enjoy reading all of the emails, especially the wild ones from 1998. - David Robert Loblaw, 03 January 2000
"Although our way of counting time is conventional, dates divisible by ten do, in practice, command enormous power to arrest attention and stimulate the imagination.... The habit of thinking in terms of decades and centuries induces a self-fulfilling delusion and the way people behave -- or, at least, perceive their behaviour -- really does tend to change accordingly."
- from the Preface of Millennium by Felipe Fernandez-Armesto.
Here's a small sampling of my bookmarked websites on a wide range of millennial topics:
THE FIRST SECOND OF THE NEW M
Does "It" start on the exciting Big 2000, or the dull anticlimactic 2001?
JESUS LOVES YOU AND A TRIPLE ZERO
Is the "Y2K bug" God's way of humbling the human race, and a precursor to Christ's return?
THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND 'OUR' FLAWED CALENDAR?
Nothing personal, but we have one of the worst calendars devised by humanity. With its corrective leap-years and leap-seconds, based on the totally inaccurate birthdate of a cute blonde baby in Bethlehem.
A site dedicated to what people are doing right now, particularily in the number of millennium collectibles that are being released.
