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.
