Below are a list of actions I’m really hoping I get around to completing next year:
1) Write and blog more – I set this blog up a few months ago, but haven’t got around to blogging on a regular basis. I have managed a few blog posts on SAP’s Developer Network, but I really want to blog on a consistent basis here. I want to blog more on Enterprise 2.0 activities and community development and organisation.
2) Get more involved with Gov 2.0 – I have been incredibly impressed with the work of the Sunlight foundation in the US. Also, the inititives Tom Watson MP has been promoting, such as the UK Government barcamp and the Show Us a Better Way competition have been very impressive in highlighting the use of new tools by Government departments. I will hopefully be attending the Government barcamp in January and really want to write more about this new dynamic that will change how citizens interact with Government.
3) Migrate blog to my own domain – I really want to migrate from wordpress.com to my own domain. I’m intending to do this – I’ve heard it’s very easy with services such as bluehost – early in the new year.
4) Go to Conferences – Over the past year I’ve watched with envy many fantastic presentations from conferences and events such as Enterprise 2.0 in Boston, Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco and New York, Office 2.0 in San Francisco and Le Web in Paris. There is great opportunities to follow the events at these conferences using Twitter and to even watch videos of presetations, but you miss the social networking opportunities if you’re not there in person.
5) Go to a Barcamp – I’ve never been to a barcamp event before. I’ve followed many of them on Twitter, and should get the chance to attend the UK Government event in January.
My other plans are to continue using Twitter and interacting in areas of Enterprise 2.0 e.g. Blogs, wikis, communities etc.
