Birth of a baby (g)URL

Congratulations to Michael Tippett and family:

Kate and I are happy to announce the birth of Sylvie Cochrane Tippett. She was born April 20, 2005, is just shy of 7 pounds, in good health and an expert sleeper (so far). We are both doing well and Hugo has enjoyed getting to know his new little sister. Photos will soon be posted on

Wow. What a dad -- a new baby girl and her very own URL from birth. Should she get her own Flickr and accounts as well?

Michael is a Vancouver native and mastermind behind Now Public. Maybe we'll see him come up for air again in a couple of weeks and we can talk about kids online during a Vancouver Beercast.
