New Year's Resolutions 2007

Some public personal goals as 2007 begins ...

0) Looking back at e.g., 2005 or 2006, be aware that I tend to repeat myself in frustration, and try to address the reasons for that.

1) Stop arguing with marketers about "conversation". It wastes my time, and it annoys the flack. It's not going to do any good.

2) Stop being delusional about ever having more influence. That ship has sailed.

3) Fish or cut bait on whether to try to push out my moldering Google and Wikipedia reports, or just write them off like the censorware research, since it's likely more effort to beg attention than it's worth for me.

4) "Life Trumps Blogging"

Thanks for the mention (http://citesandinsights.info/v5i13a.htm is likely to be a more semipermanent URL).

I set no goals this year. Deliberately. "Keep on keeping on" is as close as I'm going to get.

Yes, I enjoyed that column, too.

Mope less is my resolution. Good luck with yours (and I always like to see a list that starts with zero).

"Life Trumps Blogging"... Hurrah! We finally agree on something ;-)

My New Year's resolution: Wake up every morning in 2007 alive and breathing LOL
