2009Happy New Year to all!  We all know it’s customary to make resolutions for the New Year. I checked around and here are some resolutions from around the world.

  • Here’s my favorite: 10 New Year’s resolutions for geeks from Wired, including keeping an open mind about the new Star Trek movie.
  • Jenny Cruise resolves not to do a bunch of stuff.

  • Okay, every list has to have a green New Year resolution list.  This one is by SEO by the Sea.  Yeah, we already know we should use less energy and water, but it’s always good to get a reminder.
