on mailbucket and crossing communication-mode boundaries

mailbucket is an interesting attempt at "crossing communication-mode boundaries" as jon udell so aptly put it . jon also did a nice job of pointing out the primary flaws in the current incarnation - namely the lack of any way to limit the ability to spam a "topic". i suppose one could quickly put together a system that limits posts to subscribers of a particular topic. and i guess it wouldn't be too long before you found yourself reinventing a mailling list manager.

looking through the mailbucket technorati linkage i discovered that chris is ruminating connecting mailbucket with era , which monitors rss feeds and then emails you any changes. how long before some wiseacre sets era to monitor and email a mailbucket topic on changes to that topic, thusly initiating an endless loop of emailing madness.

not that i would do anything like that.

"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.
