The next-but-one member to join will be the 4096th.
 
Computer nerds will recognise this as a significant binary number.
 
This member should adopt the name of  212

Generation gap?
 
I would understand (and support) 4K, and not see any significance in $1000.  
 
But younger generations don't know anymore of K meaning 1024 and not 1000, that might be the real Y2K bug...

That's probably because you have been "Hexed"    (double-entendre = Hexadécimalé \ Ensorcelé)
 
When I started with computers, we worked in octal (each digit 0-7).
That would be 10000 in old money.
 
It would be quicker to type 4K.
