Akamai Founder, CTO Killed In Trade Center Attack

Among the estimated thousands of casualties in Tuesday’s terror attacks in New York is Akami founder and chief technologist Daniel Lewin.

Reuters reports that among those who died when apparent terrorists seized control of American Airlines flight 11 and flew it into the North tower of the World Trade Center was Akamai Technologies co-founder and CTO Daniel C. Lewin.

Akami, an Internet content distribution company, confirmed Lewin’s presence onboard the ill-fated airliner en route from Boston to Los Angeles. That aircraft was the first of two suicide attacks exacted on New York’s twin towers complex, resulting in the complete collapse of both structures and scores of deaths.

George H. Conrades, Akali chairman and chief executive officer, said in a printed statement, “Danny was a wonderful human being. He will be deeply missed by his many friends at Akamai. Our thoughts and prayers are with Danny’s family, friends and colleagues during this time of national tragedy and personal loss.”
