Y2K-Breakthrough New Home Page
and Key Resources

What's New

** Creative Y2K Post-Rollover Initiatives **


Welcome to the Co-Intelligence Institute's Y2K site.  Thousands of people have visited during 1998-1999, looking for ways to engage with Y2K that make the world a better place.

But change (of all kinds) is upon us. As a lone information provider, I am no longer able to adequately update this site, nor re-organize it for easy navigation. Valuable articles are lost among hundreds of out-of-date items.

Furthermore, my own focus is shifting: I want to spend more time preparing co-intelligence materials and programs for the post-Y2K world.

So I've decided to pass you on to people with good, up-to-date Y2K sites -- and to point out a few of the more timeless Y2K articles on this site that I consider most important. I'm also letting you in on my own main sources of email news and views so you can subscribe to them.

The more ambitious souls among you may wish to continue exploring the old site that has served us all so well for the past 20 months. Much of it is still very relevant - even after the rollover. I just don't have time to sort it all out -- and many of you don't have the time to slog through it!

Some post-rollover views: Although there have been many Y2K problems (see this list) there have been few major, clear Y2K disruptions. In January and February 2000, a lot of us in the "Y2K movement" did some serious thinking about what this means. In particular, I refer you to:

*** A place to share "Y2K Afterthoughts" ***
Y2K / Post-Y2K Emotional Dynamics***

With luck, this site will continue to grow, although more on the co-intelligence side than on the Y2K side. I encourage all of you concerned about Y2K to get familiar with the co-intelligence materials.  I think they will come in very handy very soon.  

May we all fare well in the coming rapids of change.
