Comment: 

William Ulrich mentions the embedded chip problem in an INFORMATION WEEK (Aug. 4) article dealing with government apathy on y2k.

"Research into the effect of the year 2000 problem on the embedded systems that control many of these industries is seriously lagging. If computer-controlled water supply, power grid, air traffic control, and other critical systems fail due to a year 2000 crash, we would face a catastrophic situation. The government must mandate comprehensive research into potential problems to prevent the collapse of critical infrastructure functions."
