Gary North's Y2K Links and Forums
This site was highly commended in the 1999 Millenium Project Awards. The award was announced in the following words:
As these awards are being announced on December 31, 1999, it is only fitting that an award should be given to Gary North's Y2K Links and Forums which has been telling us for so long that there will be no tomorrow. It has always been a mystery to me how people did not see through North's bizarre religious motivations for predicting the end of the world as we know it. A large part of the hysteria surrounding potential computer problems is due to this idiot's rantings. Yes, computers can have problems with dates. Yes, some computers will have problems. We will all be back next year, but I wonder what Gary will be doing.
It has now been days since Armageddon was supposed to arrive, yet we are still here. How could this be?
You can see something I wrote about Y2K here.
By 2004, Gary North had forgotten about Y2K and his site was only offering
advice about how to attract business to web sites. While this may be interesting,
it is not the reason that the site was listed here or given an award, so I
have removed the link. The award still stands, though, because in 1999 this
was really a loony site full of serious misinformation.
