It’s New Years Eve, and it has been a very, very long 2008. The economy is in the drain. We’re lodged under a solid three feet of snow here in Durango (unheard of this early in the year). The internet is in a period of transition. I think 2009 is going to be a year of changes. New technologies will become common place.
Things I’m looking forward to in 2009:
- First and foremost, getting married. I’ll be tying the knot on June 26th, and making Becky Peterson my wife.
- The year of the API. More and more services will open up and allow interactions from outside sites. This will result in a barrage of new sites providing more functionality than ever before.
- The beginning of the end for basic desktop apps. This will be the year that google apps and other similar services start to take off. Are you ready to move your life to the cloud. (Don’t forget, Hotchkiss Consulting is your source for help in saving your company thousands a year by moving to Google Apps)
- A new president. Although it will be difficult to get used to a president who speaks proper English, there are worse problems to have. With this new president, I believe, we’ll see our economy turn around.
I believe that this is a great time to be a technologist, an entreprenuer, and an American. 2009 will be a great year, of this I am sure. Hopefully, 2009 will also be the year that I start really keeping up on my blog!
Happy new year, everyone!
