Commemorative Calculus: How an Algorithm Helped Arrange the Names on
the 9/11 Memorial

" ... The planners of the memorial, which will be dedicated this
weekend where the Twin Towers once stood, solicited requests from
victims' loved ones for "meaningful adjacencies"?names that should
appear together on the memorial. Roughly 1,200 responses came back,
asking that a victim's name be grouped with specific colleagues, with
family members or with friends who also perished in the attacks."
