NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 1999--

FOX News Online (foxnews.com), the Internet's leading source for comprehensive news and live video, is fast forwarding into the future with a special animated interactive section devoted solely to the millennium.

For the next six months, FOX News Online sets the stage for the new millennium with this special section.

Each month, FOXNews.com will update the millennium feature with various topics like the future of technology, medicine, science, health and entertainment.

The depth of the content in the millennium package varies from an interactive city of the future, where users can explore a vision of life in the next millennium, to a collection of surveys of prolific sci-fi writers and further outlook into the future. Running in the section in July is a video archive of futuristic visions from our past, photo flips testing sci-fi knowledge, a countdown clock and millennium news archive. In the coming months, look for interviews with centenarians for their perspectives on the past century, a look at fears of the apocalypse, a discussion on how time is marked and of the millennium: is it 2000 or 2001?
