A Moment To Remember

Before I get started on what I hope is a light-hearted look at the news, we should all pause to remember the tragedy of Sept. 11.

I was at NetWorld+Interop in Atlanta, right across from the CNN Center. The hall was filled with thousands of people, and with planes still in the air, we thought it best to go to a restaurant, bar or back to our hotels.

Two days later, I drove past New York around midnight. The smoke was still billowing and a creepy, metallic smell had drifted as far north as the George Washington Bridge.

I'd like to hear where you were and what your thoughts are six years later. Write me at [email protected].
