ex machina

cnet is running a piece on freenet, which is, "...a peer-to-peer network designed to allow the distribution of information over the Internet in an efficient manner, without fear of censorship. Freenet is completely decentralized, meaning that there is no person, computer, or organisation in control of Freenet or essential to its operation." needless to say this concept usually sparks a few questions. happily slashdot hosted an interview recently with the founder of freenet Ian Clarke regarding privacy.

on the other end of the spectrum there is Kids Online America (KOLA) which companies will soon offer as a benefit to empoyees. KOLA promises:

"Imagine how the Internet would be different if there were no anonymity — if access providers knew every user’s name, address, and telephone number. There would most certainly be a drag on free speech. But credit card thieves, child pornographers, and other Web criminals would think twice before embarking on illegal activities. That Internet just might be a place you could let your kids play without supervision."

"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.
