Seeking podcast contributors relating to Y2K (Peter de Jager)

Peter de Jager, once prominent in the Y2K issue, who wrote the now infamous ‘Doomsday 2000’ article in Computerworld in Sept1993, and operated the now defunct Year2000,com website, has decided to take a look back at Y2K and is producing a podcast: Y2K an Autobiography. [Only if it writes itself! PGN]

You can google it, or find it here:

Premium Content: https://www.vimeo.com/ondemand/Y2K [You're welcome to use, and share this 70% off discount code for the premium content: risksdigest]

John Koskinen, once the Y2K Czar for Clinton's Task force has supported this effort by doing an interview with him - you can find this interview and others in the Premium content.

I have a request. If you worked on Y2K in any capacity? He'd like to interview you for the show, so that you can tell your side of the so called ‘hoax’ we were a part of — and set the record straight. If you're interested in more details on how he's doing the interviews? Please contact him at: pdej...@technobility.com

Here's his promise - you have final say on whether or not your interview is released - unlike the typical media interview where you have no control over how you're represented? Peter wants your story to represent your full perspective of your involvement and not just a few cherry picked quotes to meet the media's agenda.

My memory is, porous... but I recall responding to a posting about Cory
Hamasaki with 'May he sleep with the angels.'

I recall responding to a posting about Timothy May in the exact wise.

In my own, tiny corner of the (what I've learned to call 'the
here-and-now')... do the German have a word for this?) things roll right
along, disgustingly well. I keep finding all these wonderful treasures in
pebbles!
