Marking 10 Years Since 9/11/2001

I remember the madness of trying to get details on that day. One of the things that stuck with me is that most of the major media websites were completely overwhelmed. One of the primary methods of gathering information was through comments on aggregation sites like fark and slashdot: http://slashdot.org/story/01/09/11/1314258/World-Trade-Towers-and-Pentagon-Attacked We all leaned very heavily on the internet on that day, and discovered what a blessing (and/or curse) social media can be.

I was referring to the line "On April 13, 2029, Apophis will pass closer to earth than the orbits of geosynchronous satellites.", not to the comparison.

If someone were to read that without proper background information, they may assume that Apophis is a threat, which has been proven to be false.
