ex machina

there's not much going on here today because i'm still wading through a meaty discussion on smartmobs :

"The Internet enables people to connect with strangers in other parts of the world, getting together around shared affinities -- the whole virtual community story. Ebay adds a reputation system, and a new market emerges. Peer to peer methodologies enabled 70 million people to share their hard disk space via Napster, and 2 million people to amass 20 trillion floating point operations per second of CPU power to search for messages from outer space.

What will happen when billions of people carry devices that are thousands of times more powerful than today's PCs, linked at speeds thousands of times faster than today's broadband connections, perhaps with distributed reputation systems that enable us to find people with whom we have some common cause -- on the fly, in the real world?"

"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.
