New Year's resolution for the iCite net

posted: Dec 31, 2004 5:27:13 PM

I thought I'd enter the Technorati 2005 New Year's Resolution Reality Show Countdown Challenge. But, I don't think I'm going to win with my meager resolutions here:

Resolutions for 2005:

  1. release kickitch (i.e., announce the real name, live example on this site, post documentation, and release the kickitch for blojsom and general Java libraries)

Then, if that doesn't result in total ridicule and shame, or, worse, complete disinterest:

  1. inspire other folks to install and use kickitch
  2. release kickitch for Wordpress and general PHP libraries
  3. inspire other folks to take the general kickitch libraries and write them into other Java and/or PHP engines, e.g., Blogger, Technorati, etc.
  4. inspire folks to write a version of kickitch in Perl, especially for use in Moveable Type

Then, if all that goes OK, I hope I'll have some momentum to roll into releasing other projects of the iCite net, including the iPlayroogelati sub-project.

Reflection on 2004:

This past year has been an interesting one for my work on the iCite net. I had basically vowed to release everything in 2003, and by about April 2004, I needed to acknowledge that something had gone seriously wrong in my development efforts (which is totally my fault, but I feel better blaming it on XML a lot of the time).

So, in April, I somewhat vaguely threw in the towel on this project. And, then, being in what I liked to call "failure mode" actually helped me relax and start working again.

Also, a couple months ago, Lion Kimbro gave me a good pep talk about doing smaller / sub projects rather than trying to make the whole enchilada in one stroke, which really helped me move forward again on what has become this code-named kickitch project (coming to a theatre near you in 2005). So, I feel like Lion deserves my special thanks for this—thanks Lion!

2004: goodbye—we hardly knew ya!

Everyone: have a great New Year!!
