ex machina

i was doing my best to not post them here, because they are already, um, adequately posted, but i just can't resist juxtaposing Triumph of the Weblogs and A million DJs, one musician. if you can match the quote with the link then you'll get nothing, >absolutely free< with a no money back guarantee:
"If Web Logging (or "'blogging") is the New Journalism then scavenging must be the New Cuisine. This format for writing on the web, which some are calling the "Ground Zero of the personal Webcasting revolution", is drowning in noise because the armchair reporters - for whom the blogging tools were invented - have no idea what to use their 'blogs for or what direction they should be going in. A representative 'blog is confused, disorganized and maddeningly tiring to read. Much like a personal web site from 1996, so what's new and why should we care? Least the utopian talk of web logs changing the world and the face of journalism have you expecting more than they can deliver, there could be a useful purpose for them - given some discipline."
c'mon no peaking at the links...
"In the beginning, there were the voices: people expressing themselves, communicating with one another, offering their perspectives on the world and sharing their passions. By lowering the barriers to publishing, the Web can make those voices, whether representing individuals or their organizations, more powerful than ever before. But that requires the right tools, metaphors and platforms.

Through a gradual process of evolution and technology development, the voices have finally found a native online form through which to express themselves: a new kind of Website called the Weblog."

"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.
