Headed for 2006

Looking back on 2005, it was a good year for me and my work. Sakai is coming along slowly. I don't agree with all of it's directions, but it is a collaborative effort, so I expect some things to be different.

With the transition from project to foundation, Sakai will have less money to spend on staff next year. I'm looking at several business opportunities, primarily working at MIT to help them migrate their Stellar course management system to being based on Sakai. That should allow them to leverage Sakai tools.

Meanwhile, I'm expanding my training program by developing new modules for it, collecting material for a book, thinking about various programming projects, etc. Life is both rich and full. With Brigid (my wife) joining me in my consultancy, we'll spend more time traveling together and less time apart. I like that.
