New Year's notes to self

Writing about New years aspirations: technology from Secret Plans and Clever Tricks

Work-wise, remember to:-

  1. Investigate the possibility of using / integrating with existing third-party services rather than developing similar functions internally, or buying and deploying software at Warwick. (The smart choice is not between building or buying software – in either case, almost all the effort is in implementation and support – it's between in-house and out-of-house.) So consider Basecamp instead of QuickPlace, Flickr and its excellent API instead of image galleries in blogs, Del.icio.us instead of bookmark management tools, BlogLines instead of RSS readers.

  2. Figure out ways to get more client-side development skills into the team. Chris mentions that GMail and other web apps are raising the bar, and I think that's true, but the other driver for this is that we're just flat-out not as good at client-side development as we are at server-side. What to do?

  3. Achieve world domination, starting by taking over whole university, adding concealed missile silo under University House. Buy small fluffy white cat. Oh no, wait, that one's secret.
