ex machina

here's something to chew on from tim o'reilly's java one speach:
"There are enormous implications in this shift for the open source and free software community. For example, I've tried to get Richard Stallman to realize that the GPL loses its teeth in a world where developers no longer need to distribute software in order for users to make use of it. A hosted web application could be built entirely with GPL'd software, and yet have no requirement that the source code be released, since the application itself is never distributed, and distribution is what triggers the GPL's source code availability clause."
lots of other good stuff in there. [via camworld]

"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.
