What I Did This Year
As 2009 draws to a close, I wanted to sit down and recap some of the things I've done this year. My major accomplishment, as always, has been to remain the loved-one of my wife, Linda. Without her I don't amount to a hill of pintos. 

Most recently we have become involved in the upcoming congressional campaign of one
Tim Allison. Deborah Dent, who guided us through the Obama campaign has signed on as his (interim) campaign manager, and Linda and I have agreed to volunteer on his behalf. As a result, one of the projects I just started is an online database of voters and volunteers in the 24th Congressional District of California. I'm sorry I can't show it to you, but it is password protected by user, as it must be.

Linda and I have also started a "new" company which will complement our "old" company,
The Extended Tribe. We're still trying to get that one together and have lots of work to do. But the new one, Nine, is already seeing revenue and will probably be easier to push and time goes on. These projects, though relatively old, are being re-worked all the time.

One project I haven't worked on lately is
menotforget. Even so, of all the things I've thrown up there, it gets the most attention. Also, Tribe101 has fallen into a bit of disrepair, mostly from lack of interest, except for Ben.

This year we also started a
site to aggregate local resources, though there didn't seem to be any enthusiasm behind it, on my part. It sits there waiting, however, and may come to something eventually.

Meanwhile, life goes on. I chronicle some of my daily real-job learning at
txspt. And Linda and Jayme and I got to go to Saint Lucia this year. We've been lucky, as usual, to be healthy and happy and to have loved-ones around us to amaze and amuse us as this delightful life goes on. We are in for interesting and probably difficult (if not disastrous) times ahead and we need to be able to help each other where we can. Happy new year and love to all.
