ex machina

point :

"I keep picking on Groove, but only because there's something interesting in there, one of the few technologies that's interesting enough to care about. Yes, the Groove engineers are architecture astronauts. That's OK. They're building architecture. But they're positioning it like an application and I don't think Groove will be successful if they do that."

counterpoint :

"It's a different world now, and Groove's platform potential is far beyond that that could have been envisioned in the mid 80's. Afforded the opportunity to do so, it is surely our intent to create even more value through Groove - for our customers, for our ecosystem, and for our investors. I don't know if you view us as greedy, or clueless, or taking inept actions to choke off our own oxygen, but I can tell you for certain that we're trying our best to concurrently create a platform and an ecosystem around that platform, and to create direct application value for our customers, consistent with our ability to invest in the business and our knowledge and experience in this business.

"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.
