ex machina

having spent my high school years just a stones throw from flint, michigan during the time when michael moore's roger & me was released in theatres, i used to hear this sort of reasoning all the time:

"Le says he doesn't see many Chinese, Indian and Vietnamese clients engaging in cosmic questions about their lives in the technology industry. Perhaps that's because these workers often come from hard-core tech backgrounds such as engineering. Many of them also have a lot riding, culturally, on an industry that was milk and honey for generations of immigrants here, Le says.

``Our parents 20 years ago worked on the assembly line at Apple when the first computer came out,'' says Le, who moved from Vietnam when he was 10. Younger generations may find it hard to question or reject what their parents still see as opportunity."
of course, there are important differences, but the logic leads to the same result - chained to the "line" and blind to new opportunities.

"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.
