Time Bomb 2000: What the Year 2000 Computer Crisis Means to You!
Thank you, submitter, for another look at Y2K. We had another Y2K submission a while back. Read all about it here!
This was favorably reviewed by Library Journal, and was probably a useful book in 1998 and 1999. Is it still on library shelves for historical purposes? I found lots of articles in my library’s databases about Y2K, so my patrons are not at a loss for information about how it all went down, should they be interested. If you have space, there’s nothing wrong with keeping one or two of these, I guess, but if you don’t have space it’s an easy choice for weeding. Let the internet and online databases offer this kind of information.
I do love the seriousness of the title: “Time Bomb!” At the time, that’s what it seemed like: a ticking time bomb. If it wasn’t figured out in time, the whole infrastructure of the world would have exploded. Or so they say. I happen to know that Mary filled her bathtub with water on New Year’s Eve 1999, “just in case.”
