ex machina

i had no idea that sending drunken pictures of yourself was the new, new thing with camera phones. in any case, "photo messaging tries to rival txt" does raise some interesting points. i think in one-to-one scenarios that the novelty of simply shooting pictures will always be secondary in popularity to to texting. it's the power of conversation. i've been wrong before, but i don't think contrived efforts to develop a "visual language" for camera phones are going anywhere:

"Vodafone has come up with The Little Book of Picture Messaging, which is full of ideas for how everyday objects can become significant messages.

So a door knob indicates an idiot, the back of a bus an ugly date, a thumb says "I can't come out tonight" and ice cubes are shorthand for cool. "

one-to-many scenarios might be a little different. i like what mena is doing with dollarshort and "moblog" photos in that they add context and feeling to the site as a whole.

"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.
