I can still remember today, 11 years later. I was just about to walk in late to my English class at Penn State University when I heard that the first tower was hit on 97.9x. At the time Freddie Fabbri (the insignificant significant one) was the DJ (known best for his role in assisting Breaking Benjamin). He was about to break to another song when when he said that he received word that one of the World Trade Center towers was hit. From that point forward, none of us could ever imagine what was about to happen.
Looking back 11 years later, it reminds me of how technology changed as a whole. Disaster Recovery, Virtualization, and being mobile have all taken off. At times, it makes me wonder if this tragic event forced further development into these areas. Groups such as Wall Street West had formed in and around my area.
A lot has changed in those 11 years. However, the memories of those that were around on that tragic day have not. To all of those affected by 9/11, our thoughts and prayers are still with you.
