Resolutions of 2011

I’m always making resolves of some sort throughout the year and never really accomplishing them.  I suppose now is the time to fully embrace this habit.  This years’ goal is really a continuation of all previous years’ goals.


I would like to learn enough Chinese so that I can read Chinese Engadget without a lot of dictionary aid.  Currently, I need to look up more than 90% of the words in an article.  I’d like to get this down to 10%.


My current goal is to create one free Windows Phone Silverlight app.  I’ve got several ideas for apps that I see are missing.  This might take up most of my spare developing time.  If I have time left over from regular apps, then I want to create a Windows Phone game.  I haven’t been struck with a good game idea so far.


I’d like to not lose any more money in the stock market, thus setting a personal precedent.  I need to figure out how to better filter information from my financial news sources. 


I will continue to furiously read through my massive Kindle book collection.  This year I’m focusing on Economics, ancient Roman history, and ancient Greek philosophy.


I will write better.  There’s a few ways I can practice writing, but I think they each require distinct styles of writing.  I can blog more (a habit I’ve lost), work on fanfiction (although I’m not currently a fan of anything), or work on a novel offline.

Our haul from Pike Place

I was starting to get attached to these cute critters! But then we ate them and it was delicious.

Merry Christmas Made in China

This is why I love vacation time (Dilbert 12/22/2010)


I once thought this scenario was just an artifact of meetings, but now I realize it’s just an artifact of greater than two human interaction.

Dual Screen Laptop: Meet the Toshiba Libretto


I like this concept computer! It’s got a bit of lag in the top touch screen response time, but the keyboard area seems alright.

For a device that was listed on Time’s top 2010 device as well as some other blogs, it’s very hard to locate one. I can only find one being sold on Amazon for twice what it was advertised on Engadget! I wonder why this device isn’t even offered on Toshiba’s site anymore.

I Must Learn More Chinese!


Cognito Comics launches its first graphic novel for the iPad

If I were a comics reading crowd, I’d be all over this. Still tempted though.

Drool: Electric Motorcycle (Mission R)


It’s so beautiful. *sniff*
