After September 11, 2001

It’s time to resume regular programming.

My last post was made on September 11th at 9:14 am. It’s been hard to find a context that makes my usual commentary relevant since then. But I’m ready now. Hopefully, you are as well.

While I chose to respond to the September 11 terrorist attacks in the US with silence, others in the weblog community turned weblogging into a vital source of voices outside the mainstream media.

This CNET article provides some insights into the use of Weblogs since September 11 as did Wired News.

In the days that followed the attacks, I used the following quote to sign off on my e-mail correspondence.

“History is merely a list of surprises.
It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again.”
