2010 Blog posts a year in review

January 25th, 2011

This entry is cross posted from my TSSG blog.

Just to check my sanity, or insanity I’m going down through the years activities as captured in my blog posts.

In total I managed 19 posts for the year 2010, although admittedly some of them got written in 2011, but I thought it would make sense to date the posts for around the time the item actually happened.

The blog started in 2010 with an Update on Irish Future Internet Forum” from my 2009 activities and my last post for 2010 was on the “FIA Ghent and the PII Future Internet award“.

The most viewed post was a 2007 entry “The relationships between different scientific disciplines shown as a paradigm map” although I think because of the image and pick up from StumbleUpon during the year it brought through many viewers.

The most viewed 2010 post, written in 2010 was the one I put together on the MONET Special Issue: Advances In Wireless Test beds and Research Infrastructures which overall I’m especially proud of this activity, as I spent countless spare time hours to put together the actual journal, and I’m glad to see readers appreciated the post.

Google was by far the biggest referrer of people towards the blog, with people seemingly wanting to find out what I was doing for “EU FP7 Call 5”. Just to fill you in the team won 5 projects, all are up and running now, two of which I’m directly involved in day to day PASSIVE and ANIKETOS and three I monitor and support Effects+, BIC and ceFIMS.

There are still three posts I didn’t manage to complete in 2010, but I should get to send them out soon enough, and given a couple of recent trips there are a further two new posts in the making for 2011. So I plan to keep writing, bad grammer, spelling an all and if you’re still reading don’t be afraid to drop me a line, ask a question or dare I say leave a comment.

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
