I’ve been thinking about what I have done this year and what I want to do next year.
I got some guys together to start the Ductape Hackerspace, possibly the first hackerspace in Africa
I joined 2 groups alternate lifestyle groups and made some great friends
I bought 2 waist coats and a pocket watch. trying to go for a Steampunk look but not quite getting it right yet I think
I changed jobs and found that I don’t enjoy the corporate environment. Well at least not this corporate environment.
I bought an Arduino and a Wiimote. Probably 2 of the coolest toys ever.
Plans for 2009:-
Build something cool using the Arduino
Organize a locally made run of Arduinos and teach a class on how to use them at Ductape
Get Ductape organized and running smoothly. Hopefully find a permanent venue.
Write at least 1 blog entry every day. This could get challenging, but I’m gonna give it a try.
Build and wear a Gloging rig. A glog is a cyborg log. Basically a webcam on my shoulder taking a picture ever minute throughout the day.
Move out of my parents house
Find what makes me happy and do more of it
Consume less caffeine
Exercise regularly. This is just for flexibility and basic health purposes.
Learn to program in Python
Build a RepRap
Well thats all I can think of right now. This list is more of a guideline/reminder than anything else. Hopefully I will get a few of these done. What have you accomplished this year and what do you hope to accomplish in the coming year?
