ex machina

i have seen the future of the automobile - and it is filled with advertising and the internet (or here for an even cooler i-car). the advertising business model, in conjunction with the realization that the web-enabled auto is the 'perfect' vehicle [sic] for delivery of sevices will quickly bring the cost of an automobile to zero - or a nominal fee if you only want a discreet (think 'text only') ad on your auto. from the wired article:
"Andrew Everett, a 31-year-old physical therapist in Los Angeles, wears a full-wrap Yahoo ad with pride on his Jeep Cherokee, one of the premium $400 per month winners. He now washes and drives his SUV all the more carefully, feeling almost like he's working for Yahoo.

"I love it. It doesn't bother me at all, really. I definitely wash my car more than I used to in the past, and not just because they want you to keep (your) car clean.""

can the 'free' home be far behind?

"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.
