ex machina

while browsing the nascent business plan archive , think smug thoughts about how you won't be that poor sap condemned to repeat history. don't miss the Statistical Summary of the Dot Com Shakeout - complete with lively metaphors, sure to work wonders at your next cocktail party:

"It may appear on the surface that the decline in dot com shutdowns is simply a result of the fact that are no dot coms left to shut down. That is not the case, however. We conservatively estimate, based on several data sources, that between 7,000 and 10,000 Internet companies have received some sort of "formal" funding, which suggests that at most, ten percent of significant Internet companies have shut down or declared bankruptcy. It may be safer to say that the Darwinian process has left many fewer WEAK Internet companies. But to say that the decline in shutdowns is because there are no dot coms left is a bit like saying a decline in rabies rates is due to the fact that all the dogs are dead."

[ 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.
