Small companies, local governments and individuals may be the innocent victims of the year 2000 problems.  You certaintly did not cause the problem.  You might not even have any computers at your business. Nevertheless, you could be harmed.  Our society is interconnected and interdependent on computers. So whether you have a personal PC or not, there is the possibility that other companies' computer failures could have an affect on you.

Why did you join CPSR?

I have been a member for about 14 years, but it seems to me that, given the current state of our nation (and the world), CPSR is needed more than ever to help protect and strengthen democracy and human rights.
