Today is, of course, the anniversary of the dreadful attack on the twin towers in New York. The Gorse Fox reflects that when it happened he was working in the BBC World Service headquarters, designing and implementing their new broadcast infrastructure. As the news broke all of the TVs in the building were tuned to the various news feeds and those not involved in the news gathering and output stood, shocked, and silent, at almost every TV. We too, stood and watched as the story unfolded. A sobering day. A day of infamy. A day for which their is no mitigating back story.
