ex machina

it's all morbus all the time. well, not quite, but i did want to post a superb rant that he posted awhile back that's just been collecting dust in my bookmarks - XML-RPC and the Need to Cash In:
"One of my problem is this (and I know this is an age-old complaint that has not aged well): All of these technologies are for geeks. Geeks, geeks, geeks. Repeat ad infinitum. Sharpie "I AM NOT A REAL PERSON" on the top frame of your computer monitor. It's important. Mayer-Briggs says we think we're smarter than everyone else, and goddamit, we're proving the damn pigeon-hole test right."

Where are the end users? How can my dog get in on this crap?"
as he mentions, it's an age-old complaint, but one that's worth repeating ad infinitum.

coincidently, morbus sent me a link today that i thought i'd pass on regarding Search Engine Friendly SSI Image Gallery that looks like it's on par, effort wise, with mod_rewrite schemes for producing url-rewrites.

"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.
