ex machina

so, i drop by anil's site in an innocent attempt to get some more information on his latest project - magazine. instead, i find myself completely enthralled in the enfolding fiasco between anil and little green footballs .

i was going to write a long, rambling stream-of-consciousness style post, but then realized that rafe had already written exactly what i was going to write. only with better editing.

i stopped reading little green footballs long ago when it seemed to be getting a bit, er, unidimensional. just to be fair, i don't visit metafilter as often as i used to for similar reasons. ditto with unfiltered slashdot comments. and yet there's something unsettling about recognizing myself in anil's comments :

"I used to have strong opinions about current events and policy in my late teens and early twenties because, well, that's when those things are easy and everything yields to an idealistic world view. Today, the more I see of the extremes, and as I see every issue reduced to some binary us vs. them debate, I'm too disgusted to be engaged."

"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.
