Millenium Continued from page 49 to prevent the chaos and confu- sion that Y2K could bring if the problem is left untended. Among those experts were John A. Koskinen, director of the Presi- dent's Council on the Year 2000, and Costis Toregas, president of Public Technology, Inc, whose mission it has been to identify the problems of Y2K and find solu- tions that can be applied in time to keep Jan. 1, 2000, from being the Federal Government Gateway for Year 2000 Information Directo- ries at <http://www.itpolicy m> or Standard for Year 2000 Test Certification at < dex.html>. Once the test determines whether a computer or microchip will be victim to Y2K, then the problem becomes one of fixing it, and that means a sometimes hefty financial outlay for government or industry. Koskinen said, "The Federal Reserve Board has estimated that dawn of what they call an "Elec- the U.S. alone will have to spend tronic Ice Age." Koskinen summed up the attack plan on Y2K by saying that all computer-dependant operations should make back-up files and then find a way to test for the date bug at one of the Y2K Internet Resources sites such as the U.S. about $50 billion to fix this prob- lem. And, make no mistake, we have no choice but to fix it. If we have the time, money and enohgh coop- eration, we can do it. "The federal government is ap- propriating about $117 billion to fix its computers." The real test of whether Ameri- ca is ready and willing to meet this pending crisis, said Koskinen, will be determined by how local governments, at state, county and municipal levels, meet the chal- lenge of spreading the word of Y2K and leading the effort to fix its many problems before the year 2000. "Noah had a sign from God and began building the Ark," said Koskinen. "We have been given a digital sign of Y2K, and we must act now." TPI's Toregas, whose company authored the 56-page document "Y2K & You," said the job can be done, if local governments re- spond quickly. "The Y2K prob- lem is not difficult to solve," Toregas explained. "Some local governments have already become Y2K-compliant, perhaps 5 percent of all counties in the nation. Perhaps 70 percent of the counties are aware of the problem and will start working on it soon. We must continue to spread the word." In the private sector, Koskinen said, the government has been as- sured that major electric, gas and oil utilities are preparing for Y2K and should not experience prob- lems. But smaller, local utilities may well fall short, resulting in "pockets of blackouts" come Jan. l, 2000. President Bill Clinton said re- cently, "We can share our infor- mation and find solutions so that Y2K is a fun move into the 21st century and not a cyberspace headache." / County and municipal govern- ments across the country and here at home are working toward solv- ing the Y2K problem before America enters an Electronic Ice Age.
