ex machina

oreillynet has started hosting blogs - tim's looks sparse but promising, for example he writes about visiting :
" They are deep into xml, think of their site as having an API (and in fact already have partners using that API to build services that use their site). They aren't quite ready to have it documented, but they are definitely thinking ahead to the kind of next generation object web that Jon Udell talks about. And of course they are exactly the kind of company I've been looking for to study in terms of heavy scalability issues. At peak, they are moving massive, massive amounts of data, and have multi-terabits of data on file. High reliability, high speed networking, etc. All of this is their bread and butter. This would be a great company to spend time with.

They are also totally into what it means to be a next generation web company: try stuff, measure it, move quickly. They have built a lot of perl tools for understanding what people are really doing on their site, and they do a lot of experimentation. They try to release new features every day. Their original goal was 1 new feature a day; now they say they are up to 15 or 20. "

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
