A trip to the past (Sept 11-related)...
 
It's the 18th anniversary of Sept 11...

Sowpub was about a year old when the attacks happened. I thought I'd go back and have a look at what we talked about...

I remember I was completely shocked at the time, and this was all I could post...

A few days later, we talked about dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder...

One guy in NYC reported how touched he and other New Yorkers were by all the love pouring in from the globe...

We talked a little about the difference between the entrepreneurial spirit, and profiting from tragedy...

And in a more light-hearted note, it was pointed out that "sex" dropped off of the top 10 searches online, for the first time in the history of the internet...

Because of the longevity of this forum, we're able to take a "time machine" and go back 18 years...

Thank you all for being part of our story (both back then, and today)... It was a tragic day, and we have had other tragic days since then, I pray that we can help this world become a better, more just, and less violent place...

Best wishes,

Dien

I remember it well. Those were dark days. I still get emotional when I see the tributes even all these years later. Gordon and I wrote the original version of "How to Get Out of Your Rut and into Your Groove" in the aftermath of 9/11. Looking back 18 years on that experience, I now seeing that creating that tool/course was more therapeutic than anything (for me at least).

And thanks for keeping Sowpub going for all these years. It's a shining light in the marketing world.
