Need copy…I agree

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

This was funny…not sure what I’m agreeing to:


IA Summit

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I’ve been working flat out as program chair for the IA Summit. So much has happened in the past few weeks:

And I think it is time to have a rest.

(Of course, none of this is my work alone – just look at how many people are involved.)

My year ahead

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

I was going to do a ‘year ahead’ post like Derek & Tuna. And I’ve been thinking about all the things I’d like to put in it.

But today I figured out what will really make my year work. Two seemingly tiny things:

  1. Say no (sometimes) when people ask me to do work for them
  2. Stop worrying about everyone else’s resource and skill problems

That’s it.

Year in review & year ahead (belated)

Monday, January 8th, 2007

I meant to write a ‘year in review’ on or around new year but, for completely normal reasons (i.e. I’m overcommitted), didn’t get to it until today.

I don’t normally do one of these, but I had a ripper 2006 and would like to congratulate myself on:

And…still spending some time with my family (though not as much as they’d like).

Oh, I’m tired just thinking of it. I think I’ll post my ‘year ahead’ tomorrow night.

Spam & comment deletion

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

I’ve spent the evening house-cleaning – I’ve had so much blog-spam through that I killed my host’s server a couple of times.

Of course, in deleting spam, I’ve deleted some legit comments as well. I’m so sorry if I deleted one of yours! If you remember it, please re-comment and I promise I won’t delete it again.

I’ve been trying to get around to posting a ‘year in review/new years resolutions’ post, but spam is sucking all my spare time.
