ex machina

well, it's way passed due, but all of the vast wasteland now supports rss autodiscovery . if that doesn't mean anything to you then fughetaboutit, otherwise read on for the gory details.

i was rereminded that i wanted to support autodiscovery after reading mark pilgrim's excellent ultra liberal rss locator :

"One of my biggest pet peeves about the current generation of news aggregators is that they don't work very hard at finding RSS feeds. The other side of this coin is their stubborn insistence on making RSS visible. RSS should be completely invisible."

oh, how i long for the day when we can be rid of all those silly orange xml icons cluttering up valuable real estate and confusing my grandma.

then, with impeccable timing, brent simmons throws in support for rss invisibility in the latest beta of netnewswire , so i download it and gave it a shot for the various pages on my site and found out that it's not quiet as liberal in its design as mark's ultra liberal rss locator . hi. ho. so i decided to do the right thing finally and support not-so-liberal rss location.

"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.
