FlightAware on the NBC News


#1

Did you catch FlightAware on Brian Williams’s broadcast tonight? In a spot on telecommuting (17 minutes into the show), the interviewee’s computer screen showed FlightAware’s homepage. Very cool.

I noticed that tonight. I wasn’t even watching it but was looking in the general direction of the television, took a double take and yelled out whoa it’s FlightAware! lol

It was a story about importing previously exported jobs such as airline customer service operators.

SOME PEOPLE think that THEIR contributions are somehow better than everyone else’s and deserve a special NEW topic for each one! :unamused:

Thank you, NeedleNose. You’re right – I have never before posted to an on-line forum, so I am completely naive about the conventions. However, I’m a major fan of FlightAware and was jazzed when my eyes spotted it on the computer screen on NBC news. The camera shot was quick, but who wouldn’t recognize FlightAware!
