ex machina

whoa. groove got a boost today:
"Microsoft Corp. MSFT and Groove Networks Inc., the leading provider of decentralized software for secure business collaboration, today announced a strategic relationship designed to advance the delivery of Web and peer services to businesses. As part of the relationship, Microsoft has invested approximately $51 million in Groove Networks, resulting in a minority equity stake. Previous investors, including Accel Partners, also participated in Groove Networks' $54 million financing."

"Both Microsoft and Groove Networks believe that utilizing an appropriate mix of centralized and decentralized infrastructure is critically important to organizations of all sizes."
this has the potential to be good on a number of fronts. obviously bad because of the bad things that can happen to good companies that work with microsoft. then again, i know billg respects ray, so i suppose it's not out of the realm of possibility that ray and company are in the early stages of a courtship.

"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.
