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. Â (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. Â 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. Â 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. Â Maybe what I need is a good social media rant. Â I’m sure you’re all waiting on pins and needles for that one.
Lots has been going on. Â I’m an empty-nester now; the youngest kid started college this fall. Â 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. Â And plenty of other things going on, some of which probably deserve their own blog posts.
Maybe those will get written in 2015. Â Plan: write. Â Journey of a thousand miles starting with single steps, and all that.
