So it has been one year exactly since I last wrote to this journal. I think I've been neglecting it a little bit. I had planned to put together some kick ass visuals, plans and general content for today but I never got round to it. Instead I've been writing out my plans and drawing sketches with pen and pencil.
I was tempted to write about what has been hapening in my life but it's really not that interesting (at least to the average journal reader I guess). I'll write about what's to come as that should be more exciting.
Okay how many times have you heard this one. So far though I've been working on lots of mini projects and I've finally decided I'm ready to start on the big one that I've had in my head for 5 years. The fact that I've only seen one thing vaguely similar is reassuring and I really hope people will be interested in it. Got to get some materials ready though before I announce it here.
I'll also try and create a good format for my journal with pics/design/discussion/code all taken in to account.
* I'm in Japan now.
* I'm going to try Open Solaris out.
* Lots of other stuff here but too tired to think after work.
Am I the only one thinking that the journals haven't evolved (feature wise} in quite some time. They serve their purpose well but they could do so much more. I'm thinking of what marketting people call Web 2.0 but everyone else knows is a cludge of technologies. I mean cludge in the nicest possible way. There's some things that don't belong on a facebook profile but could on a gamedev journal/profile.
Here's some ideas just to get you thinking.
+ Personal Image Gallery
+ Developer Networks/Teams
+ Surveys / Voting
It's not really needed but you never know...
