The author opens by comparing Y2K-related problems with the US stock market crash of 1929. Just as regulations for the US accounting profession stemmed from the stock market crash, the author calls out for an Information Systems Standards Board, arguing that such an organization could have prevented Y2K-related problems--and could prevent such fiascos from occurring in the future.
