out of the memory hole
I've decided to put my 9/11 archives online. Until now, they only existed in the Trapper Keeper of the internet known as archive.org; I had switched to a new host that October or so and I never bothered transferring my older blogging stuff (February - October 2001) over to the new site.
I hesitated especially to repost the 911 stuff. I don't know why, I just never wanted it here. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I need to save all of that; it's a complete record of my discovery of and reaction to the events that unfolded on 9/11/01 and the days after. It's all the news, the rumors, the emotions, the subsequent self-discoveries that came with all of that.
I'm putting up my posts from the first few days, and then certain posts from the months after that had anything to do with that day. After that, I'll attach some of my later essays revolving around 9/11 to what will be my archived personal history of 9/11.
It's kind of disconcerting to re-read all of this. It brings it all back in raw form, which is why I never bothered to upload all of it. But, as with many things, I've changed my mind on the importance of keeping it all in one place.
The archive of day one is here. I'm going to try to get the rest posted over the weekend.
