New Year, old stuff
While we're at it, I guess New Year's is also an opportunity for looking back (or so they tell us in media land; gotta fill otherwise-empty pages and web sites through the holiday dead zone somehow), so I did. If you haven't already, have a look at my 2011 top 10. Ful disclosure: I was out of the country on leave from January of last year to mid-March, so I missed some things; and even when I'm here, I miss plenty, given the continuing failure of my best efforts to gain control over time and space. Nonetheless, I had enough memorable experiences to still leave a few on the floor. And please, disagree. That's what these things are for.
