News in Review Y2K: Millennium Chaos?

With the coming of the year 2000, governments, businesses, private organizations and individuals are wondering what is in store for them when the clock strikes midnight and the new millennium begins. This is the kind of news story that requires that we ask some basic questions: what will definitely happen, what might happen and what will definitely not happen? Finding answers to these questions will provide a cure for the so-called bug. The larger millennium story, however, suggests the nature of human behaviour and the fear of “apocalyptic” events, the issues of predicting and planning, and the notion of time.
