It goes on and on - a fascinating look from another perspective of that day. Probably a total invasion of (the expectation of) privacy as well, but given what people put on Twitter in 2009, this is invaluable from a time when Twitter didn't exist - and blogs BARELY existed. (I think the first time I ever really followed a weblog was when I was trying to get the most immediate information that I could find on what was happening in NYC on 9/11.)


    2001-09-12 01:00:41 Skytel [007035485] D ALPHA If I don't hear from you in 2 minutes I am going to call hospitals and the police. I am serious. I am worried.


A ZIP file of the entire archive is available (a mere 12.8M compressed, 47.6M uncompressed).

[ Hat tip to Mediaite (mediaite.com), who have some less mundane excerpts on (ugh) page 2 of their story ]

And I should also direct you to the thread over at Reddit (reddit.com) where everyone else has already done the heavy lifting and sifting. :)

    08:46:46 Arch [1612975] D ALPHA PAGE FROM lifeline: alert 8933585 ETS appl nbetpsd27.fi.gs.com ETS RTCE: - Market data inconsistent...Cantor API problem Trading system offline on nbetpsd27.fi.gs.com, run by etsuser on nbetpsd27, pid = 24277


    Originally posted by Cantor Fitzgerald's wikipedia page
    Cantor Fitzgerald's corporate headquarters and New York City office, on the 101st-105th floors of One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan (2-6 floors above the impact zone of a hijacked airliner), was destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Cantor Fitzgerald lost 658 employees...Immediately after the first attack, at approximately 8:46:46 AM, six seconds after the first plane hit the tower, a Goldman Sachs server sent out an alert page stating that a Goldman Sachs trading system server had gone offline because it was unable to interface with a Cantor server.


...and in a flash. Holy shit.

Not mentioned, but a favorite of mine with Newman. He did the News on David Letterman's way ahead of its time Morning show. He would do the news, Dave would talk to him and try to crack him up, Ed would josh a bit with Dave.
