W EBSITE OF THE WEEK
The government is ready for the coming year and has a site to prove it. Y2K.gov is the government's response to
the 2K phenomenon. Information on becoming Y2K compliant, information sharing and even contingency informa-
tion are all available on the website. There is even a section for consumers to get the averae American quickly
up to speed on the Y2K. A Y2K checklist is also available to help residents prepare for the New Year. The best fea-
ture on the site is the government update section, informing the reader of Y2K compliance efforts.
