In Rememberance Of 9/11/01
from the what-are-people-doing dept
Dennis and I were discussing what to do about it being September 11. To be honest, the events from one year ago still make me numb. This site is a technology site, and not a personal site, so I wasn’t quite sure how or what to put up in this space, but completely ignoring it didn’t seem right either. We added a small ribbon to the header for the day, and many other sites are doing similar things. We thought we might just run through a list of what some popular websites were doing to commemorate the tragic events of last September 11th. Yahoo redesigned their site in a very understated memorial gray. They also put up a great living tribute which is worth surfing through. eBay is running a discussion board. Amazon.com has some very touching drawings and quotes from some very young children. They also put the times of each of the plane crashes across the top. Even the White House has put up a very nice, understated memorial site. While Google and Teoma added a little ribbon, Lycos went all out and put up a front page memorial site that you need to click through to get to the actual search engine. AltaVista also added a ribbon and is scrolling a list of the names of the victims. Feel free to add other sites or personal thoughts in the comments. Update: News.com has an article listing many different sites that have memorials up.
