ex machina

when i saw the google api, i thought one thing - phonebook. i think it would be useful to use have a instant messaging rosterbot that gets phone numbers, or addresses and links to maps and maybe even additional information about the location. if i link it to jabber, then i could use something like umessenger to access it over my i85 phone. nothing too complicated to start out with, just quickly getting a phone number for an address or an address for a phone number would be useful.

but alas, it appears that the undocumented phonebook operator gets removed from api queries, even though it still works on the website. looking at the search query that gets returned from the api request, i can see that phonebook: gets removed. other operators like related: still work. 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.
