Goodbye Osama Bin Laden and Good Riddance
I rarely talk about 9/11 - unlike some people who somehow can't seem to get enough of reliving the horror. Today, however, I will say goodbye and good riddance to Osama Bin Laden. I lost 17 friends and colleagues and dozens of industry contacts at the Risk Waters technology conference in Windows on the World that day. Bin Laden's death will come as a relief to Neil and Dinah and David and Simon's families, but it won't bring them back. Sick freaks who carry out attacks such as 9/11 in the name of religion or politics or whatever the cause deserve justice. Today we can feel that a little bit at least has been served.
