This paper is concerned with the Einstein vacuum equations under the additional assumption of T-3-Gowdy symmetry. We prove that there is a generic set of initial data such that the corresponding solutions exhibit curvature blow up on a dense subset of the singularity. By generic, we mean a countable intersection of open sets (i.e. a G(delta) set) which is also dense. Furthermore, the set of initial data is given the C-infinity topology. This result was presented at a conference in Miami 2004. Recently, we have obtained a stronger result, but the argument to prove it is different and much longer. Therefore, we here wish to present the original argument. Finally, combining the results presented here with a paper by Chrusciel and Lake, one obtains strong cosmic censorship for (T)3-Gowdy spacetimes.
