There are only about 12 hours left in the year, which seems about the right time to take stock of what's happened to me in the past 12 months and what's to come in the next 12.
Looking back, I can't believe all that I accomplished in 2007. Some of the highlights include:
- Speaking at three conferences (WebVisions, Penn State Web Conference, and An Event Apart) on the topic of standards management and evangelization
- Writing about standards management and evangelization for a book
- Running my class's 10-year reunion
- Receiving the Young Alumnae Service Award from the Bryn Mawr College Alumnae Association
- Serving as volunteer Webmaster for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing
- Flying over 100,000 miles
And that list doesn't even include work accomplishments!
As I plan for 2008, I have a number of exciting challenges ahead: more writing, more speaking, more travel -- but also serving as a committee chair for GHC08, running a BarCamp, writing a CS1 course curriculum based on Web development, and more! But best of all, I'm looking forward to moving home to Philadelphia -- a slight change in plans, but a good one.
Into 2008, and into the Arena! (And if you don't get the Duran Duran references, shame on you!)
