Discussion of Boston Marathon And Other Tragedies/Events At Work

Like virtually every other tragedy in recent memory, the bombs that went off at the Boston Marathon engendered zero discussion in my workplace (insurance company, about 100-150 people on my floor). Granted we're fairly busy, and I don't talk to everyone I work with, but I've been in several meetings with at least 20 people in the last 2 days, seen many others in the hallways, work discussions in and out of offices etc. Not a single word about the marathon. On one hand I suppose it could be considered a good thing - the media is doing a sufficient job driving the story into the ground - but at the same time it just seems odd to work with people so totally unaffected by tragedy. (Not a word was mentioned about Newtown, either). Is anyone else in a similar position, in that their coworkers don't seem to discuss current events very much, if at all?

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
