Twenty Is Myth

Anil Dash has written a post of remembrance every year since September 11th, 2001 (yes, on the day).

His blog has lots of other great things on it – but the ONE post I always look for is his post.

We were away at DevCon in San Diego that day. I was up early and was able to absorb the news firsthand. I have an affinity to New York for a number of reasons: my sister lived there, we honeymooned there and it is New York. But the days that immediately followed in 2001, I saw the heartbreak of attendees who were waiting to hear from loved ones there. It was an entire surreal experience of being in a city with an military base. Fighter jets flew everywhere while no commercial planes could be seen. I recall the first flight that took off from the airport.

But Anil was there in New York that day and his posts have always struck me, providing a personal experience that goes beyond the media recaps and speeches. He notes that this may be his final post on the matter but for the past posts, Anil, thank you.
