    There is about ten minutes left until 2008. I’m spending it at home with my family this year and very quietly seeing in the new year

    2007 has been very interesting i’m looking forward to 2008 for lots of reasons.

    Just a couple that spring to mind…… 

    There are whole bunch of new products on the way from Microsoft (Server 2008, SQL 2008, Visual Studio 2008) which is great from a geek perspective (new tech!) and from a business perspective (new opportunities!)

    The business is nice and stable now and i’m hoping that this time next year we will have a grown significantly. There has been lots of planning going on in the second half of this year that i’m looking forward to putting into place over the next few months.

    In Vlad’s new year post he talks about how OWN will be launching new products in January including some suprises. I’m looking forward to seeing some of the products he’s been working on (Theiving Weasel and the public release of Shockey can i buy ativan online Monkey?)

    From an SBSC point of view things will change. I’m hoping the community will continue to grow and we’ll see more people getting involved.

    In addition to this the first anniversary of PAL’s program will come around. I’d like to take this chance to thank Vijay and Gareth for all the work they have done in the UK in 2007

    One of the things i love about new year is actually the unknown.

    As an example, at new year 2006 most people had barely heard of Facebook. Now you’ll struggle to find a net user who hasn’t at least heard the name.

    There will be new technologies and trends that people hadn’t thought possible during 2007

    Things will happen that are completely unexpected.

    Some people will come to the fore, and some people will move on to pastures new.

    Whatever happens it’ll keep us our toes and whatever it is….bring it on

    Whatever your up to tonight have a great new year and i look forward to catching you in 2008
