ex machina

on unconscious spatial window management

embedded in ars technica's exhaustive panther review , there's a great bit on something that i've been doing for a very, very long time, something that is so deeply embedded in my way of doing things that i hadn't ever thought about it - spatial window management :

"That's right, Mac users actually manually arranged their windows like so many pieces of paper on a desk. Insanity! The height of inefficiency! Au contraire. I won't bore you with the details yet again, but suffice it to say that there is a vast well of cognitive resources just waiting to be tapped by a bunch of boringly coherent and stable objects on a screen."

"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.
