Great list from Susan.
- Get a video iPod second model when it comes out in June or sooner (i want wide screen, buying 2nd gen Apple stuff is always better if you can wait that long)
- Do a weekly video blog in a format that works well on iPod Video
- Do more screencasting
- Create enhanced podcasts for documentation and fun
- Create three 1 minute movies about Vancouver
- Dive into Jabber and XMPP since 2006 is the year of XMPP
- Get a new desktop with oodles of RAM and disk (4GB, 160 GB or more) and power to run Aperture and RSS aggregation and filtering over 1000s of subscriptions and searches
- Dive into RAW processing of my photos using Aperture 2.0 (probably an end of year thing!)
- Buy, beg, borrow or steal :-) a mobile phone that does WiFi and has a 2 Megapixel camera and half VGA or better video (e.g. N91) and run a VoIP over WiFi client on it as well
- Convert all my websites to Drupal (i.e VanEats)
- Run my own Linux box with Drupal for my own experiments
- Give back more to the Drupal community (probably by writing more handbook pages)
- Increase the audio quality of my podcasts!
1) Get an iPod and go all digital Yeah, I owned an iPod--and I gave it to my kid. This time, around, I want a video iPod and I want to move all my music over to digital--and figure out a media storage solution that works as well.
2) Upgrade my phone and add a decent video camera to it--with clogging and podcast components.
3) Start podcasting weekly-- a friend had a great idea--I still want to do it.
4) Move my blog to a new domain and get off blogspot. Aanyone need explanations on that?
5) Upgrade from my friend's digital camera to my own--and buy flickr pro--got it for my client, need to add my own access.
6) Tag more. I think tagging is amazing, but I avoid doing it. Change that a bit.
7) Get a decent new computer--or a cheap back up machine.
8) Do more new tools beta testing on a weekly basis--using that back-up machine I wanna establish.
9) Learn more--a lot more--about extreme programming--as I got more and more into product development this is a critical area to build competency.
10) Keep having fun with technology--it's gotta be both enjoyable and useful--and it can be.
11) Turn off my land line phone for good--between the VOIP options and the cell, the $$ I am paying is a waste.
12) Buy a big TV. Yeah, I don't watch it, but it's time to upgrade from 19 inches, doncha think?
13) Card scanning or something--figure out something to do with all those business cards that are stacked in bowls around my office. I do want to talk to some of these folks again.
