Happy New Year – Reflections for 2008

Well, another year has come and gone. The Earth has finished another full revolution of sol. (More or less… see: solar vs sidereal year.)

It feels like just yesterday that I was welcoming the arrival of 2007… or was it 2006? I’ve not been 100% about writing a post on New Year’s Day. Still, the time has flown by. It’s hard to believe I started this blog way back in 2003. It’s hard to believe I only just moved to New Jersey – it feels like I’ve been away from Massachusetts for a lot longer.

There’s been a lot of change in the last year. New technologies, and existing technologies becoming cheaper (just look at LCD and plasma TVs). I could spend all day naming new products – but don’t worry, I’ll spare you from that horror.

I could also spend some time reflecting on the state of world affairs – but I won’t. I’d rather be optimistic on New Year’s Day.

So, here’s wishing everyone everywhere a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2008.

Happy New Year!
