65. Interesting because Andrew talks about software as well
It could well be connected. Bea systems only suffered 2 casualties.

The BEA family has suffered the tragic loss of two of its employees. Ed Felt, one of our first employees, best engineers, and most respected and loved colleagues, died in the crash of United Airlines Flight #93. Ed, a senior architect based in Liberty Corner, New Jersey, was one of the original members of the BEA Tuxedo team, and was instrumental in making that product so successful. In fact, this past August Ed was awarded a U.S. Patent for "Method of Authentication Based on Intersection of Password Sets". He was a mentor and friend to many of us, and an inspiration to all. Ed is survived by his wife and two children.

Quite a number of companies must have had pre-knowledge about the attack, because they were virtually empty that day, however some didn't like Cantor Fitzgerald Securities who lost 2/3 of their employees. The same applies to Windows on the World, who was also struck hard.

It seems like BEA systems like the media on the 110th floor must have known, because there was hardly anybody there. I mean there must have been more than 2 people working for BEA systems.
