ex machina

every wonder how the unwashed masses are using attributes of the 'a' element? sure you have. well, now you know :

"While thinking about linking, I was curious about real-world use of attributes of the A element in web pages. After considering various ways to gather sample data to churn through, I found the Google programming contest, which links to a tar.gz file with 162 megs of sample web pages. After John Cowan told me about Yahoo's random link ( and curl I also wrote a script to have curl pull down about 7000 random pages from Yahoo for a total of about 62 megs. I then wrote some scripts to analyze the use of A attributes in the Google and Yahoo sample data and the results are below."

[ 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.
