Honestly, this was one of my more productive years. While I still haven’t gotten any further on either of my private projects (and in fact abandoned one of them, having been beaten to the punch by a startup this summer. You ambitious entrepeneurs should leave me some hobbies) , I did manage to get some reasonably meaningful things out.

Worked on some pretty awesome stuff at Y!RB. Programming, data analysis, and social media research – it doesn’t get any better than that. Now I just need to figure out what I want to be doing after this year, which may in fact mark the end of my affiliation with graduate school and possibly academia in general. Scary thought. Where to go from here…
