Great editorial from Ok Go, a band that gets the internet, about their label, EMI’s YouTube policy, which demonstrates a high degree of not getting the internet.

Thanks to everybody for the all the messages welcoming our boy. He and Mom are doing great back home.

Given the lack of a FB announcement, I’m guessing you guys are struggling to pick the right name. On my walk to the train, I had a moment of inspiration. You should name him after one of the characters from Lost. Like Desmond. Or Jacob. Or Smoke Monster.

Sets for Book Layout
www.flickr.com
I finished putting together the sets of photos for the Implementation book today — not all of the decisions are made and we need to reshoot some photos, but you can now read most of the novel on photos. It was a fun but tough process selecting the photos. The book will be structured by installment, which function like chapters. We’ll probably aslo have some thematic layouts — for instance implementation stickers with other sticker art, implementation stickers with world landmarks, etc. serving as a sort of interstitial between some chapters.

had a great time with Aurora after her first school dance, going through her middle school yearbook and making predictions about each kid’s future by making snap judgements on the basis of their current yearbook picture. I had almost forgotten how much fun arbritrary profiling can be. By the way, the 80s are way back again. Now is the time to purchase stock in hair gel companies.

wishes some of that earthquake back home would move to the general belly zone of my expectant wife. When this kid’s a teenager we’re gonna need a bullhorn to get him out of bed in the morning.

I don’t know man, I was hoping you could be the special uncle with the same birthday as my son, but Jill seems really reluctant to give this one up.
Scott wrote on Eric Rettberg’s timeline.
Hey happy birthday little brother. Hope your flight makes it so you can see your girl. Your present from us is coming home with Mom (and your turkey baster).

if the boy comes tomorrow he’ll share a birthday with his uncle Eric. That’d be pretty cool. Also, I won’t have to change the tickets for his first trip home to Chicago that I bought this morning. The form wouldn’t let me put “TBA” under date of birth. So there’s a lot of factors pulling for tomorrow.

ELO mess inspired me to waste an afternoon closing security gaps in other sites I work on, while sort of working on an article I need to finish writing this week.

Past the due date, as predicted. I told Jill that the baby and I have an agreement that the real contractions will start at about 11AM Monday, and the whole shebang will be wrapped up around 4PM — civilized, during regular work hours, fast, efficient, nearly painless delivery, almost certainly.

I was looking for you around noon. I should be around tomorrow, if the baby isn’t early. Beautiful smile in your profile picture, by the way!

I love this Berkeley beetle letter. I might start writing letters like

downstairs neighbors about the snow problem. “Dear neighbor, Many times
you have seen me on the stairs that we share, removing snow with a
strange implement. You must have wondered what

man I wish my favorite pizza joint in Chicago wasn’t such an avid facebooker. I am tempted to tell my favorite pizza joint to perform an obscene act upon itself for so often reminding me of the pizza I cannot get while I am in Norwayl If they could facebook me a pizza, I would take one, but enough of the painful reminders of what I should be eating right now.
