Computing

  • The New Year: people, companies, governments, and much of the world were fearing the worst (planes falling out of the sky, electricity grids and essential services collapsing). What people feared was not the apocalypse but the Y2K bug _ a computer problem that many feared would result in many computers not recognizing the new year. The more important problem for computer_related companies this year, however, was the dotcom collapse that started in February and lasted well into 2001.
