ex machina

i almost missed "a confirmation alert, fisked" the first time around. as someone once said - it's funny because it's true:

"The key thing to remember, as always, is that people hate alerts. Alerts are the telemarketers of the graphical user interface. They interrupt what you're doing, they demand you deal with them before you do anything else, and they generally make you feel bad. And the worst variety is the confirmation alert, which insists you answer a question before you can do anything else.

Naturally, answering a question is rather difficult if you haven't read the question in the first place. "

"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.
