Happy New Year!
At the beginning of 2007 I listed some resolutions:
- to get back to some “real” work,
- to keep travelling and speaking (I do love it so!),
- to not write a book,
- to play more bouzouki.
- Web Directions North in February
- BarCamp London 2 in February
- South by Southwest in March
- The Highland Fling in April
- Web 2.0 Expo in April
- XTech in May
- @media America in May
- Reboot 9.0 in May
- @media Europe in June
- Hackday in June
- An Event Apart in August
- dConstruct in September
- BarCamp Brighton in September
- Fundamentos Web in October
- Voices That Matter in October
- Web 2.0 Expo Berlin in November
- @media Ajax in November
- BarCamp London 3 in November
As a result, I did plenty of travelling. I paid inaugural visits to some wonderful destinations:
I’ve already got some more travelling lined up for 2008. I’ll be making at least one return trip to San Francisco and needless to say, I’ll be in Austin again for South by Southwest. But not all of my sojourns will be web-related—Jessica and I will be making a trip to Thailand in February that I’m very excited about.
I’m going to start cranking up this year’s odometer in a few hours when I make my return trip across the Atlantic from Arizona back to Brighton. I think one of my new year’s resolutions should be to plant a forest in an attempt to assuage the guilt I’m feeling about my carbon footprint.
For my future self throughout this coming year, here are those resolutions you were looking for:
- Reduce and/or offset your non-renewable energy output.
- Give blood.
- Lose some weight, you fat bastard.
- Play more bouzouki.
