Resolved that 2012 was the year of the return to proper blogging, banished save buttons, rewrote the software behind this site again, launched textagon for ios, made a large cosmetic change here.

February

Pixelpixxed, celebrated President’s Day, daily turned 11, consulted, visited Austin.

Wrote about product integration, got a retina iPad, again inspired by Haughey, started pixodes.

April

Analyzed my personal publishing over the past decade, bought a Fuji X-Pro 1, quit Instagram, released ekko, loved Fez, switched to my own RSS reader.

May

Realized we all get the internet we deserve, quit most services except Twitter, ate breakfast.

June

Advertising is Warfare For Our Minds, shared some of my philosophy on product management, predicted failure for Win8/Surface, was reminded the future still can’t catch up to the internet’s past.

July

Ate more fruit, cut out the junk, tried to identify junk, simplified my computer setup, bought a Macbook Pro with Retina Display.

August

Visited Michiana with Lisa, visited the Computer History Museum, visitied Williams Street.

September

Watched the Phoenix Wright movie, went to XOXO Fest.

October

Got rid of a lot of stuff, packed, moved, focused on the important thing. Started wearing slippers.

November

Loved tagless clothes, distinguished between web presences and web sites, remembered money is free in the new economy, had a memorable Thanksgiving, started the next big project.

December

Watched the Lost Steve Jobs Interview, got new underwear, advised doing less faster in your software, explained how the dream of the early web came true.

I wrote a daily entry every weekday this year, so there’s a lot more than that.
