Et tu, K?
From an interesting thread about Y2K at Crooked Timber
At the millennial First Night Boston, someone did an art installation which filled a small hotel exhibition room with computers, so that people could watch to see if they failed.I can't remember what I was doing on NYE 1999 but I hope it wasn't that dull.
It was interesting to see the people who were ringing in the new millennium watching a room full of junked computers. Or maybe they didn’t stay either. My husband said we had to get home by 11 in case the subway stopped running.
