The Written Word


Disasters, both man-made and from Mother Nature. You can’t avoid them. It’s what you do with them that matters. Todays word, dear children, is brought to you by the letter ‘R’.

This is the story of WorldCom / UUNET and what the fraud and eventual implosion did to those of us inside the grenade. We take you though not just what happens when you give your heart to something grander than any one individual, but how it affects you after greedy/soulless individuals rip it away. And most importantly, how to be resilient and thrive afterward.
