testing ad sense and sensibility

after debating the merits for nine months and occasionally coming to the conclusion that i wasn't going to do it, i've decided to test google's adsense on the conflux and {bio,medical}informatics portions of the site. i think they work well on the informatics section, less so on conflux, although the selection of obesity-related ads are amusing given the topic of the current post. i may or may not turn on ads here, but it's unlikely.

Sounds like a good idea to me. There's exactly zero chance that I'll ever again click on an Adsense ad, so you finally prompted me to get around to seeing what it takes to persuade WinXP to use a hosts file (Start, Run, msconfig, Services, uncheck DNS Client, reboot, edit Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, add Now your advertising is that much more targeted!

ha! why stop there?

this is more of an experiment than anything else. it's hard for me to imagine how the adsense ads are "effective" for anyone. i almost never notice them anymore and have never clicked on one.

but is it fair? that's the real question.

[ 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.
