It wasn’t that long ago folks were talking about Y2K, “What’s going to happen once we hit the 2000’s?” I was with some airline executives in mid-December of 1999 and they all were assigned flights at the stroke of midnight to prove it was safe. Some computer executives I knew had to be at the office as some had predicted large scale shutdowns in the financial and security world.
Needless to say, January 1, 2000 came and life remained pretty much the same. If you want to have a humorous look back, check out some of the commercials made back then. ESPN’s “Charlie Steiner Sportscenter”’ Nike’s “The Morning After”’ DeBeers Diamonds, “Diamonds are Forever”, kind of funny to look at them now.
