Knowing well that I won’t be able to abide most of them, let me formulate some resolutions for the next year:
Write more. This year, chris blogs suffered a lot and only got rarely updated. I hope to blog more in the new year, and also about other and more interesting topics. Not only the blog was affected, though: I noticed that while I got 68097 mails (thanks, ruby-talk!), I only sent 561 mails this year.
Furthermore, I’d also like to write some longer pieces, maybe a tutorial or a book chapter.
Release more. I have lots of nice code that’s 80% ready for release, I hope to push it out soon next year.
Attend more. I have been to Euruko and RailsConf Europe this year, and I’d like to attend these again next year again, and also ICFP (this year in Freiburg!) and the 24C3, which I followed closely via the net this year.
Contribute more. I want to bring at least one line of code into the new Ruby implementation efforts, most likely Rubinius.
Code more. For next year, I’d really like to finally bootstrap the language idea I’ve been thinking about for the last months, but I can’t tell you a lot more yet.
Also, you maybe noticed that this year, there has been no Nukumi2 release. This is because Nukumi2 finally got outdated and hopefully will be replaced with a dynamic and document-centric publishing environment that’s soon slowly but steadily turning ready for usage. I’m already looking forward to use it for chneukirchen.org and Anarchaia.
With these resolutions written down, I finally wish my readership a happy new year!
