interesting how quickly the tone switches as they watch tv and speculate and broadcast

say what you will about howard stern, but this broadcast was historic and fascinating.

and all that craziness and hate and destruction that went down nine years ago
bloomed into more craziness and creativity and construction all over the web.

how it made everyone understand this medium. how that tragic event sent everyone online.
and embraced the non-professionals who were there, or who were good at pointing to the there.
