I think is has more to do with the perception of the individual and what it means to them.
Anyway biblically it says it is the number of Man. Is the beast Mankind then, biblically speaking.

I'm thinking around 2009-2010. Sorry it's not a 6 month window.
But really, the symbolism of 666 is so overplayed. I think it's going to be one of those things we won't know about until we see it. Then we will go "Ah ha! That is what it means!"
People start to panic anytime 666 roles around, 666 A.D., 1666 A.D., 1999 A.D. (666 upside down), June 6, 2006 (6-6-06), the Hebrew year 5666 that has come and gone, etc. to infinity. Some think it referred to Nero only and some think it referred to him as well as a figure still to come. Because Greek had the same characters for letters and numbers, it seems very vague to us.
We are specifically told that the translation of this warning "calls for wisdom" which means it's not going to be obvious to the casual reader of the Bible or an unbeliever. It is a special warning that will be understood at the appointed time.
