This blog in review, 2007

posted 29 December 2007, updated 29 December 2007

This year the blog tended mainly towards the "keeping in touch" side of communication, and less to the side of thinking about things. I prefer the latter, and made a concerted effort to squeeze in a few of those before the end of the year. I also worked too hard for a big chunk of the year, which lowered post volume, but after 7 years I finally relaunched with a new look and feel and a codebase that doesn't make me barf, so the foundations are laid.

  • I complained at length about Citibank's awful IT and general lack of joined-up thinking (and switched to Wells Fargo).
  • I predicted that Google's YouTube acquisition would lead to a ton of lawsuits (it did) and a rise in popularity of alternative sites that still allowed piracy (which it also did) and the death of YouTube (which it didn't).
  • I saw Barack Obama speak in Oakland and was extremely impressed. The Iowa caucus is in less than a week, people!
