ex machina

tara created a nice little script for date-based searching using the google api:

""What if you gave Google a query and a certain number of days back you wanted to go, and Google just pulled the number of results for each day and then wrote them to a file, so you'd have an idea of how often a query word set appeared in indexed results over time.""

if you did a little deviation detection and multiple correlation analysis with thresholding, filtering and notification, you could have a nice little "business intelligence" application.

for example, it'd be pretty handy to easily look at correlated deviations in frequency, "notify me when "wlan" and "nokia partnerships" occur more often than normal in a single month."

"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.
