What a lazy “#documentary.” It’s almost all archival footage skewing towards the false notion that #Y2K was hysterical hype about a nonexistent problem. https://www.hbo.com/movies/time-bomb-y2k

People who diminish the necessity of the massive effort and expense directed at the #Year2000 problem are no better than doomsday #preppers and #conspiracy theorists spreading pointless #disinformation.

@mjgardner yeah, it always surprised me how people reacted. just because nothing super major happened, didn't mean there wasn't an actual problem. programmers just worked their ASSES off fixing software, right up to the last minute in some cases. And even so, there were still some high-profile failures; if I remember correctly a French railway was completely incapacitated as their entire booking system went down.
