2008 was a pretty extraordinary year for me and some of the projects I have been working on. However, I have been very bad at documenting these events. Most of the time I can't even manage 140 characters in a Twitter post, let alone a proper blog post, despite the fact that I can now blog and Twitter away from my iPhone. In recompense I am going to make a few retrospective blog posts looking back at some of the major events that affected my work and me in 2008. This is partly to tell others about them, but is more for the self indulgent reason that I should keep a better record of what I have done, less I forget! Hopefully, this will help me keep one of my New Years resolutions - to become a better blogger.
