The year to come

Dec 23, 2004 by glennji

This will be my last post this year – Dee and I are going camping in South Australia for the next two weeks, and it’s unlikely there will be mobile phone coverage, let alone wifi internet access. Of course, it doesn’t really both either of us, and is in fact one of the reasons we are going. No communication, no computers, no technology. Time to recommune with nature perhaps. A spiritual recharge, certainly.

My work has really slackened off as the end of the year draws near – not my “pay to live” work, but rather the stuff I enjoy doing, the information society work: opensource, Gnome, proof reading digital copies of classics and so on. More over, my “self interest future” work hasn’t had much focus (that’s the new business stuff with Chris), as much as I think it should.

Next year we will start again. I’ll be bugging Chris a lot more, that’s one thing for sure, and meeting up with him for our regular brainstorm, planning, work session. I also want to step up the interaction level of the members of the Melbourne Open Source Meetup Group that I’m organising; maybe get some new blood in, and do something interesting with it.

It can all wait until next year. First, it’s time to pack.

Whilst Dee and Jules play videogames downstairs, I sit in a beanbag in my makerspace and contemplate the various hardware projects that I would like to complete over the next couple of years.

I guess I should update the ‘blog?1 Not an easy thing to do these days, since even finding the time to do something as self-indulgent as public journaling probably just means there’s something else I could be doing instead, but maybe it’s an experiment I would like to continue?

It’s 8am on the first day of the month, and despite the usual late night, I’ve been up for hours. Jules has been an early riser for years now, and it has had the effect of training me to wake up at 6am each morning — for no good reason, since he’s pretty independent in the morning these days — and so here I am.
