ex machina

maybe it's just me, but sometimes when i see an article like 10 tips on writing the living web , i can almost hear the whooshing sound of it rocketing up the daypop top 40 .

on occasion these rising stars will be filled with pleasantly platitudinous gems like "write for a reason" and "write often" and i can't help but notice that the author is the chief scientist for a $195 content management system .

in the end, i'm left with the vague notion that i'm witnessing a new, savvy form of blog-powered production and consumption that makes me want to take a shower or obsessively wash my hands.

or maybe i'm just testing out tips 5 and 6 on writing the living web - "find good enemies" and "let the story unfold".

"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.
