January: Happy New Year to all!
February: Given the current state of the U.S. Economy, the following new rules will be instituted for this year’s annual Groundhog Day celebration festivities:
March: A few weeks back, Time Magazine published a list of the 25 People to Blame for the Financial Crisis, in which it details the 25 people (or groups of people) that it considers most “blameworthy.”
April: The New York Times ran an interesting article last week about the impending obsolescence of voice mail.
May: Jeff Porten raised an interesting question about the water boarding of 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, which led me to do some more detailed reading on the subject, specifically the International Red Cross Report on Detainee Abuse, and several of the Top Secret DOJ memos from May, 2005 that President Obama recently declassified (Memo 1, Memo 2, Memo 3, Memo 4).
June: As some of my readers are aware, I have been resisting joining the two newest social networking trends – Facebook and Twitter – for quite some time now.
July: It seems the new iPhone 3GS is not a big fan of direct, prolonged sunlight:
August: Sorry I’ve been away so long – its been a combination of being busy with non-blog things, a dearth of short, pithy things to say, and a host of longer, meatier topics that I’d like to discuss, but haven’t had the time to write about.
September: I’ve just returned from my first indoor baseball game – the Minnesota Twins played host to the Chicago White Sox in the soon-to-be football-only Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome here in Minneapolis.
October: This story was related to me at a leadership seminar today.
November: [Halloween was] very successful, thank you.
December: So many blog-worthy things going on in the world all at once!
And, like Ilya, they are generally reflective of what was going on all year, but in no way insightful or coherent when viewed together. Ah, tradition – how your sweet comfort frees us from the need to make sense of the things we do each year…
