2008 was pret­ty excit­ing on the web, was­n’t it? The con­tin­u­ing rise of social media, mobile inter­net, APIs, frame­works… it’s get­ting hard­er to keep up with it all.

Aside

I’ve updat­ed my Speak­ing page to include more con­fer­ences, more videos, and a lit­tle on my speak­ing require­ments and pref­er­ences. I’m plan­ning to cut down on the num­ber of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to inter­est­ing offers and oppor­tu­ni­ties, so please get in touch if you’re organ­is­ing an event.
