ex machina

me thinks that nick is on to something with his 80% company proposal:

" That particular company went bankrupt; the frenetic activity of the years has produced about a dozen lasting companies and a generation of burned-out cynics. They will never again believe that a business can be built on enthusiasm – and venture capital – alone.

And this is why I intend my next company to be different. No more late nights. No more monomaniac workaholics. Less heat, more light. If I keep my nerve, I’m going to institute a four-day week as the norm. Call it the 80% company."

i never would have guessed there was a google directory dedicated to workweek reduction resources complete with a link to the shorter work time action page from the monty python-esque "society for the reduction of human labor". maybe i should start a midwest chapter of the society, if for no other reason than i like how it trips of the tongue.

"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.
