ex machina

Old-boy network's power exposed:

"By considering various possible networks in a board of ten members (a typical size for a corporation), the researchers show that each network can be assigned a 'force' which measures the likelihood that the board will approve the CEO's proposal. If the board has, say, three links between members (a link indicates that they sit on an outside board), then 40% of the possible networks have at least a 75% chance of approving the proposal. For a non-interlocked board - one with no old-boy network - this chance is close to 50:50, as it should be. In other words, even a small amount of cliquiness can make a big difference."

"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.
