Welcome to 2009

It's been 2009 for a little under 2 weeks now, and so far I can confidently say it will continue to be for around another 50 weeks or so. OK - I accept that's not my A material - moving swiftly on...

At this time of year it's customary to make a few new year's resolutions - fresh commitments you somehow feel renewed fervor towards keeping just because we incremented the year counter by 1 - and they almost always involve gym memberships.

If I take a brief look back at last year's resolutions I think I can safely say I hit my top priorities, but just as predicted, the exercise part seems to have slipped through the cracks. No matter, that's what these annual counter-flips are for, getting invigorated about your health for 30 days or so.

I'm always interested in hearing from people out there in the technical community for any reason, and from time to time I am lucky enough to receive some feedback on my posts (thanks by the way!). Over the last 12 months the articles that have generated the most interest have been on management, dealing with people, and being effective in organizations. It seems like you want to hear more about getting things done around technology than about the technology itself. Well there's some resolution input right there...

This year I'm going to try changing the balance of the content I write, aiming for a higher ratio on project management and professional disciplines without completely dropping the things I like to bring up on architecture and computer science. After all, a hundred little things happen every day, and it's just a matter of being a bit more selective about what's captured and shared.

So yeah, welcome to 2009, you can make it whatever you what you want it to be.
