When I was a child I felt that I had a mind like a steel trap, any fact that made it through my conscious barrier would be there forever. I took no photos since my memory would suffice, and taking photos was too invasive anyway… As I grew older I realised that rather like someone suggesting that 640 KB would be enough memory for anyone my younger self had failed to comprehend the sheer amount of data that would pass through my grey matter during my working life. As a computer professional I can honestly say that I have not stopped learning since I was even younger than the young self above, with new code, facts, problems and processes presenting themselves quite literally every day.
Only a couple of weeks or so to go before the end of the year, 2012 has been an odd one for me. On the one hand, quite a few things just didn’t happen that I was expecting, whilst at the same time there was a resurgence of TEFOSAV, a change of jobs and some side projects finally looking like they might actually be grinding into gear.
Looking forward to the next year at the moment. Should be interesting…
There once was a cat called Matt,
Who sat on a pompous rat,
“Get off me you cur,
You may damage my fur.”
Alas yon rat became flat.
