ex machina

over on the ptp list, there's a suggestion to put a wiki clone on the nocat box which manages the "captive" portal:

"One of my plans for a long time has been to deploy a wiki/weblog/forum (something along those lines) on each nocat box to act as a neighborhood forum. Given the geographic boundries of wireless I think that this could be a pretty powerful tool. In the Lucky Lab it could be used for customers to chat, for the Lab to post specials. In a neighborhood it could be used for neighboorhod events (block parties, news letters etc). What would it be used for in pioneer square?"

the suggestion of a wiki is timely, since the jspwiki is now sporting an xmlrpc interface. and it's fun to contemplate what other things you could throw in the box - perhaps caching and a jabber server? hmmm.

"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.
