"Although our way of counting
time is conventional, dates divisible by ten do, in practice,
command enormous power to arrest attention and stimulate the
imagination.... The habit of thinking in terms of decades and
centuries induces a self-fulfilling delusion and the way people
behave -- or, at least, perceive their behaviour -- really does
tend to change accordingly."
- from the Preface of Millennium

bookmarked websites on a wide range of millennial topics:

by humanity. With its corrective leap-years and leap-seconds,
based on the totally inaccurate birthdate of a cute blonde baby
A site dedicated to what people are doing right now, particularily
in the number of millennium collectibles that are being released.
