I was about 100 miles east of Bogota, Colombia, in the Andes Mountains, on the side of a mountain. Ive often wondered how many careers were destroyed-or shouldve been. If you remember back then we were involved in the Y2K mania/pandemonium. We were frightened ablazes to death that security systems werent going to work, that airplanes would lose their navigation systems mid-flight, and that Star Wars was going to KABOOM! And that even our personal laptops wouldnt work. Like all good Latinos, we, of course, celebrated well and brought in the New Year. And in the morning, I woke about 7 am when my eyes popped open. I go to the front porch where the mountain Eastern sun is shining in full glory. Theres a chair I sit myself down in and - Im in flow! Very cool location, after all, on a pretty cool day... And Im writing a little poetry to my beloved - who Im there with!... And my laptops working perfectly fine. Hmmm... There is no radio at that remote distance, no internet, no cell service... We didnt know if the rest of the world existed or not. Of course I had my suspicions it did, though I wasnt to find out for sure until we got back on the road and in touch with radio signals. Wow, okay, so we go from writing poetry to crashing 747s all in the same change of the year, all in the same threat. Interesting how we humans can exaggerate what we focus on and we can manipulate, and hypulate something we want to sell. And we must, as consumers, guard against being over-hypulated. I never bought into the Y2K. I read the explanations, bought a software patch, and it was installed in less than three seconds. That was the extent of the Y2K, and some people crested it to an information marketing fortune and consulting quick fortune. Of course it crashed and burned on them, immediately after the new millennium came. You know what? It was the same exaggerated mania they had at the last millennium. Imagine that!
