16. I joined because of 9/11
I work in one of those metal buildings with no radio reception. On 9/11, our only way of getting news was the Internet, but the Internet was too jammed up to be useful. However, one coworker was getting news. He was getting it from DU. I went on DU, too, and got hooked.
