MSNBC: "The attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon may have demolished
offices and scattered papers, but they did not destroy all records. E-mail
messages, voice-mail recordings and other electronic traces of people were
routinely preserved by computer networks or telephone companies, in the
interest of backing up data should the power go out or a computer fail.
These e-relics often captured a moment in time that is both beautiful and
chilling to the people who discovered them."
