One Year Ago
At 10:29 this morning, bells rung throughout New York City, marking the one-year anniversary of the collapse of the North Tower of the World Trade Center, the result of terrorist attacks. Light Reading urges our readers to pause a moment in remembrance of the victims of that day.
As events unfolded last year, many of us put aside what seemed like trivial stuff -- the networking business -- to think about the more important things in life. For a while, this site was transformed into a meeting place for those discussing the events.
