Network World sister company located near Boston Marathon finlish line

The IDG News Service, which supplies stories and multimedia content to Network World and its sister publications, is located at 1 Exeter Plaza and overlooks the Boston Marathon finish line. While the office was closed today, a live camera feed was set up and captures smoke emanating from the deadly explosions that took place Monday.

There were early reports that cellphone service had been shut down by city or state officials (as concerns rose that cell calls could trigger another explosion), but carriers have said they were not asked to turn off service.
