I have been laying low on my blog and in social media for a few weeks. I typically go into a little bit of a “hibernation” during December as the days get continually shorter heading for the solstice. Around the holidays, I am most interested in spending time with my family.

With 2011 upon us, here are a few things I hope to achieve this year (in no particular order):
- Enjoy life with my family
- Sharpen my Python skills
- Build at least one useful application with a NoSQL back-end
- Build at least one application that runs on a cloud infrastructure (maybe in conjunction with the previous three items)
- Get better with many of the cloud-based geospatial tools and deepen my proficiency with Arc2Earth, WeoGeo and GeoIQ offerings in this area
- Educate my customers (especially the Federal ones) and colleagues on all of these
- Grow my company
- Engage more with my professional community (locally and beyond)
- Stay on top of the latest research on management of type 1 diabetes and the search for a cure
- Maintain enough control over my schedule to be able to accomplish all of these things
Happy New Year, everyone!
