Things that make you go huh?


From the editor

##first name##

September 11 was the day the Net became human.

Cold mechanical cables and computers carried the warmth of the world to those in need.

Total strangers became virtual brothers and sisters as we shared our shock, rage, grief and sympathy via the web, email, chat and message boards.

Ordinary people told extraordinary stories of horror, sorrow and heroism. Amateur photographers captured images to rival professional footage.

On a day when voice phone lines and news web sites couldn't cope with the demand, the Net lived up to its original mission - to ensure communications would continue in the event of attack.

Connecting people is what the Net does best and communication is the key to healing.

The Net transcends national borders and time zones to bring people together to talk, learn and maybe, just maybe, make the world a better place.

Telling news stories online is challenging with all the tools at a journalist’s disposal. Cyber-journalists must think simultaneously in various media, including words, ideas, story structure, design, interactives, audio, video, photos and news judgment. See the best from the growing fields of infographics and information design, including amazing interactive graphics created to try to explain September 11.
In a net shell: All too clear.

Can’t Cry Hard Enough
http://www.cantcryhardenough.com/
Designer Jason Powers created this moving online tribute to the victims of September 11 while alone in his apartment trying to make sense of the tragedy. He emailed the link to 25 friends and millions have since viewed it. The music (sung by Victoria Williams), pictures and words combine for a powerful punch. Jason hopes the memory may “motivate us all to be the best at what we do”. (3.54 min, Flash.)
In a net shell: Sad.

91101stories.com
http://www.911digitalarchive.org/special/91101/index.html
Brad Callaway and Todd McFerren created this site to collect stories and pay tribute to the victims. Recorded sound grabs and haunting music, from a slow march to bagpipes, is the background for the stark text. The site is now a permanent part of the September 11 Digital Archive. (Flash, streaming media).
In a net shell: Look back.

Digital Collection – September 11
http://www.interactivepublishing.net/september/
“The web has no memory - unless it is created.” The Digital Collection’s September 11 archive includes images of 230 news sites from around the world captured on September 11 and 12. Creator Norbert Specker says many of the screen shots are the only witness to what the “front page” of online news sites looked liked on that day as few online publications kept copies of their pages.
In a net shell: Historic HTML.

Remembering September 11
http://www.nasponline.org/NEAT/911memorial.html
Children lost parents and other loved ones in the attacks on the four hijacked airliners, the World Trade Centres and the Pentagon. Millions more children watched footage of the horrific events on TV. The National Association of School Psychologists offers free tips and resources for parents, educators and other caregivers on helping children cope with the anniversary of September 11.
In a net shell: Don’t forget the kids.

The Paradox of Our Time In History
http://www.washingtonmo.com/words/01-10-14.htm
“The paradox of our time in history is that....We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less…” Read the rest of this poem for a timely reminder of what’s important in life.
In a net shell: Time to think.
