Y10K Problem

by Kevin Kelly on June 15th, 02007

I just noticed there is a Wikipedia entry for the 10,000-year problem. That is, most computer operating systems today are not ready for the additional digit the year 10,000 will require in dates. This idea was sort of a joke at Long Now during the Y2K “problem” at the year 2,000. The Wikipedia entry is not treating it like a joke.

How Long is Now?
