Look, it’s 2015. How’d that happen?
Blogging has been pretty much nonexistent this year, apart from a public service announcement about the Heartbleed bug and a public statement about boring encryption stuff. (Which, if you’re actually interested in that sort of thing: I did finally get the requisite number of signatures and replaced my key in Debian just in time to avoid the Great Key Purge of 2014.)
It’s a new world. Social media has made blogs obsolete, supposedly, except that they’re now too busy competing with each other (and, sometimes, their own fans) to be terribly useful. I’ve tried to write a blog post about that a few times, only to delete it out of frustration and long-windedness.
So there’s a resolution for 2015: get past these social media issues and get back to regular communication. Maybe what I need is a good social media rant. I’m sure you’re all waiting on pins and needles for that one.
Lots has been going on. I’m an empty-nester now; the youngest kid started college this fall. I’ve been busy at work and busy at skill freshening, including getting on this funky Haskell bandwagon that seems to be all the rage among the cool kids. And plenty of other things going on, some of which probably deserve their own blog posts.
Maybe those will get written in 2015. Plan: write. Journey of a thousand miles starting with single steps, and all that.
