"Considering the emergency, the Internet network has focuses on what was essential. Information and communication. Here are the two main words of the Web a few minutes only after the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers", it is said in an article published by Le Figaro about the role of media's websites in the diffusion of an exceptional piece of information. In "Internet : un média ponctuel", it is explained that large medias, as television, have used websites to gather as much pieces of information as possible.Some sites have transformed themselves almost instantaneously, in order to be used as information point by employees hosted by the Twin Towers. For instance, the website, a virtual guide of New York, which has changed into a real database of survivors as soon as September 11th 2001, has allowed survivors to write down their name and to inform their families they were still alive while telephone lines were overloaded or cut.
