2012: blissful optimism, weariness and Tech resolutions

I read again my post from last year, and honestly, I could paste it and you won’t even notice it’s from 2011… ‘Most of the people I know are celebrating, wishing everyone the best for the new year. Me too I hope everything will be better in 2011 but since we always hope the next year will be better than the previous one, it makes me feel a little bit desperate about how things will turn out… On December 31, 2011 we will all hope -again- than 2012 will be better than 2011. Sounds kind of crazy, isn’t it? It reminds me my post about how things are repeating themselves again and again in Darfur: when History is a never ending story… Anyway.’

A complete change of subject. Tech resolutions. I read some interesting articles on that topic, the first one on Mashable. The author says: ‘This year is going to be different. I resolve to change my ways — at least my tech ways — and make the world a better place for me and everyone who knows me. This is my goal. These are my 2012 New Year’s resolutions.’

On CNN, Five tech behaviors to drop in 2012. ‘… It’s not too late to throw a few more on the pile. And since half of us spend an hour or more online every day, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project, it’s worth considering a few Web resolutions to go along with those vows to drop some pounds or put down the smokes.’

I don’t make resolutions because of New Year. Beside my ‘optimistic pessimism’ expressed at the beginning of this post, on a more personal side, I will take into consideration some suggestions: ‘Get out more’, ‘Tweet more’ and ‘Please add some color to the World of Sama!‘. I think I can do that. But you know, resolutions are easy to make… I will tell you more on December 2012! 😉
