Good idea! Perhaps aligning it with the 2000 meme might give it a increase
in popularity because of the fact that many people believe something
dramatically world altering will occur in 2000 but they don't know quite
what as well as if we were able to figure out how to get to the moon in 1

quite close to nano so it is a possibility with enough driving force behind it.
