Annotation: Written by Phil Oye, this is the story of an information architect who lives in Manhattan. He was changing trains at the World Trade Center when the first plane hit.

Excerpt: I'm on my way to work to try to be there by 9 a.m. for our status meeting. As usual, I'm running a few minutes late. I hop on the N/R and reach World Trade at about 8:50. As we get off the train and go through the hall from the subway tunnel and enter the lobby of the World Trade Center, we see no people and a lot of smoke.
