The online sample chapter of O'Reilly's XML in a Nutshell

Matt is really whipping his site
into shape. He's added a section called More
that features longer essays and articles. His Reflections on SXSW
from last year has me feeling worse than ever that I won't get to go this year. But at least I got a chuckle from Matt's URLs (like "a.wholelottanothing.org/more.blah").

that my dad wrote (melody and words), and that I put to music and recorded with my friend Jon
. I find my performance incredibly embarrassing, so I am not sure why I am posting this. Perhaps it disarms its power to embarrass by sharing it with you. Or maybe not... At least it was fun to work on something collaboratively with my dad. You should try it.
Did you know that Robert Altman's teenage son wrote the lyrics to Suicide is Painless
