THERE are always reasons why companies change or update their current IT systems, and one is the fear of failure or disaster. This was highlighted in 1999 when we were heading towards the millennium and 'Y2K' – a brand new type of disaster, and possibly the first ever global IT crisis. As Y2K got closer and closer, it kicked off a worldwide panic attack in an effort to avoid a computer Armageddon come midnight on December 31 1999. Fortunately, the IT crisis was a damp squib, but the frantic activity in the run-up to Y2K did deliver a silver lining to the computer manufacturers and their business partners and in particular software manufacturers.

Exhibition "Everything is Golden" by Michelle Wise Opening: Thu 29 Oct 2015, 6 pm Exhibition: 29 Oct - 12 Nov 2015 Spacebar Cafe 15/76 To Ngoc Van, Tay Ho Dist, Hanoi Join us for the opening of "EVERYTHING IS GOLDEN", a selection of paintings and contemporary lacquer by Michelle Wise. "EVERYTHING IS GOLDEN" is a series of works developed out of Wise's personal interest in using colours and simple geometric shapes to explore how spatial and color relationships have the power to evoke emotional responses.
