On 9/11/01 I was at the company where I was one of the developers.

I'd been at my desk. hacking, for about an hour when my right-hand guy, Woosung You, called in to tell me a plane had hit the WTC, and telling me to turn on and watch any TV I could find.

We had a TV in the conference room, so everyone present (all 10 of us)(it was a startup) sat and watched. Transfixed.

We saw the second plane hit. I think that by 11:00 we all knew our startup was going down the tubes: what small startup could survive a world war?
