Abstract

Weighs up the millennium bug (Y2K) and the processes of early technology which have brought this problem to the fore, in particular computer programmers/business managers' lack of foresight from the 1960s to the present day. Contends that IT specialists and business managers talk different languages and do not easily communicate with each other. Further discusses the computer's reasoning behind the Y2K problem and uses a highlighted panel to help in this. Stresses that because computers now have such responsibilities, the aura of infallibility plus cost and dangers involved, seems to be causing a semi-paralysis among companies and businesses.
