2011 and Beyond..

As 2010 comes to a close, and everyone is blogging and tweeting their goals and what’s up next for 2011, I figured I would get some out there, as well as make sure I get at least one post in December this year, I have been slacking.

  • Blog More
  • Complain Less
  • Lose Weight
  • Spend more Time with Ella and Emily
  • Learn to Cook (more)
  • Develop a cool application/site/thing and ship it
  • Drink less coffee, and beer
  • Purge things I don’t use
  • Organize things physical and digital
  • Consolidate Services I use
  • Take more pictures
  • Ride my bike more, maybe start running again
  • Go camping often

probably could keep going. Some are quantifiable, some are more broad. Just a small list on things to look at and try to do. When we come back in a year I can look back at this list and see what I did and didn’t do.


Cya 2009, Hello 2010, Last Decade of Tech

As we approach the end of the first decade of the new millennium, things feel kind of weird. 10 years ago, we were all worried the world was going to end with Y2K, and now we don’t even think about it.

What were some of the best things tech to come out of the last 10 years? (this list is in no particular order)

iPods..iPhones

YouTube

Facebook (MySpace paved the way, and the others, Friendster)

Netflix

Windows XP

HDTV

3G

Twitter

SQL Server 2005

.NET from Microsoft

Gmail

Blogger.com, WordPress

Flickr

PlayStation 2, and Xbox 360.. and even the Wii

Wireless.. G, N, Mice, Keyboards

USB 2.0

Craigslist (after it expanded from the Bay Area)

Skype

Pandora (internet radio)

Kindle

GPS (Civilian Based – came out around 2004-2005)

Wikipedia

Music Games (Guitar Hero, Rockband, etc)

And I am sure there is a ton more I could think of.

Just think about it, 10 years ago we didn’t have anything like the above list in the tech arena. What long way we have come, and those are just some of the highlights.

What are some things you think should be on the list?
