Or, to put it another way: Done.

After chatting with my co-conspirator in Museum140, I was finally convinced to do a list of stuff I started and finished in 2011. I'm usually a bit reluctant to write these kinds of things down because it borders on trumpet-blowing but at least this way, I'll have something to prompt me when I start going senile and remaking old ideas.


Before getting to the lists, I have to mention that this time last year I was living in Edinburgh, working at National Museums Scotland and being sleep-deprived by my newborn son. This year, I'm living in Berlin, working at Nokia Maps and being sleep-deprived by my teething one-year-old son.

My job at Nokia is seriously kick-ass. Aside from spending most days figuring out how to do cool stuff in clever ways, I've been getting actively involved in organising our weekly Tech Talks.


These are sites I built or helped build with Jenni or with the rest of my awesome team at Nokia.


Things I built to make my life easier which I hope others might find useful.


Although I first published the book last year, this year, I did try out the ‘Read now, Pay Later’ experiment this year. I'll let you know how that's going later.


Having missed out on presenting it at a conference, I gathered together a bunch of stuff I learnt while working at NMS.

Digital Toys

These are the most fun bits. The silly, experimental games, gadgets and fun ways to waste time.

Still to do...

Get the Nokia Web Dev blog off the ground. Don't currently have the slightest idea how to go about it but we've got some world-class webdevs here and we should share some of those smarts.

Write articles for other people. I write a lot and, often, my only editor is myself. I have no idea if any of this is any good to anyone. The best way to find out is to try writing for another editor some time.

Present a lot more. As someone who, at one point, used to make his living standing in front of a theatre full of people being funny at them, I kinda miss that in my day-to-day.

Not move country. Seems like a simple plan but I've failed at it 3 out of the last 5 years.
