The Friday before 9-11-2001 the company I was working for at the time, Teaching Network, laid off most of their staff, including me. Tuesday morning I was still thinking about that and planning my next move.
Around 9AM FedEx woke me when they delivered my CodeWarrior upgrade. At that time I turned on the TV and saw what was happening. I was glued to CNN for several hours watching it unfold while calling & IMing all of my friends in and around NYC to make sure they were OK. When I called my mother she said this was just like Pearl Harbor.
