ex machina

i guess it's really not surprising that ebay had to ban sales of World Trade Centre and Pentagon memorabilia:
"The company says it has taken the step as a mark of respect for victims, family members and survivors of Tuesday's terrorist attacks.

According to reports, one of the sales removed by eBay staff offered debris from the Trade Centre complex."

interesting analysis by structural engineers as to why the towers collapsed, although it's really just a detailed explanation of the obvious:
""Only the containment building at a nuclear powerplant" is designed to withstand such an impact and explosion, says Robert S. Vecchio, principal of metallurgical engineer Lucius Pitkin Inc., referring to the hijacked Boeing 767 airplanes, heavy with fuel, that slammed into each WTC tower."
perhaps the most ill-timed album cover, which was released two weeks ago. no sign on ebay. yet.

poynter is publishing an extensive list of extra! newspaper covers.

more evidence of the power of a weblog and a digital comera.

it really is staggering to see the list of companies that operated in the wtc - a building filled with innocent people trying to make a living.

and maybe there are still heroes in the world. then again, the nyc public safety personnel already proved that.

"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.
