ex machina

i'm not a lawyer and i don't even play one on tv, which is why it's nice that the folks have posted a clear, preliminary technical analysis which inidcates that jabber technologies do not infringe on the aol patent :

"A technology must meet each and every limitation of the independent claims defined in a patent in order to be construed as infringing on the patent. Therefore even this brief analysis shows that U.S. Patent 6,499,344 does not in any way threaten existing or future Jabber technologies. (In fact, the patent seems to describe the original ICQ system, which is fundamentally different from Jabber as well as most other modern IM and presence systems.)"

relatedly, it was recently the 29th anniversary of instant messaging , with the introduction of an application known as TERM-talk .

"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.
