Why so quiet around here?

Happy 2010 Everybody!

I’ve had some people commenting on the lack of postings here. Their comments generally go something like: Your blog sucks so badly why do you even bother? These are typically the same folks who complain that my LinkedIn profile is basically the same as it was when I signed up a year ago.

Both these things are true.When it comes to new technology, I’m kind of a dabbler. Not exactly an early adopter, but close. Eventually I wound up with a Linux box, a Mac and a PC at home.

Well, when I initially bought the much sought after patboule.com domain, it was more of an experiment. We were building a micro-site for my job…and I thought it’d be fun to try it out as well.

What I discovered is that if I’m bothering to develop “content”, I like to have it relate to my professional/volunteer life versus whining about minutia like why the City isn’t picking up Christmas trees till January 18th!

In this regard – feel free to check out my 5 or 6 case studies, from circa 2008/9 etc. on the Nortel On Nortel website. Me and MJ had a hand in basically most things on there, either editing or writing. These’ll probably go away soon, as Avaya has bought that part of the business, and gotten some great folks in the deal.

More recently – here’s other stuff that’s been keeping me away from here:

  • Kicking butt at the day job.
  • Putting finishing touches on my first iPhone App. Hint: focused on Soccer moms and dads and beer league warriors.  And rocks, if I do say so myself.
  • Studying for language testing. Who knew that those French Grammar rules from Grade 7 could be such fun – again!
  • Still running the website at Common Sense Crossings to mobilize the east against the latest InterProvincial bridge charade. Also participating in the NCC’s workshop to envision the Greenbelt in 50 years.
  • Managing the Racing Rabbits web page for the Nakkertok Cross Country club. A truly great place to ski, and learn to ski. And you can ski at night without the Golf Course owner getting mad at you!

However – I commit to get my LinkedIn profile up to date by end of January. Who knows – maybe somebody will be checking it out…have a great 2010!
