2008 a year in review.
Thursday, 13 November 2008 08:26My last update was Friday, 30 November 2007 12:43. The lack of update results from the front page of the site being neglected. I do update this website daily, but it is typically not to sit and reflect on what was. There are a lot of things that happen in a year and it is hard to summarize in a few paragraphs, but I will try.
Ella turned 1 year old and Noah is now 4 (such a big boy!). Noah and Ella play together constantly and are great friends. Ella's favorite word is Daddy...which makes me very happy. Noah and Ella were Mr. Bones and Daddy's little angel for Halloween this year. The kids are growing up so fast it is pretty unbelievable. We are extremely blessed.
Dayna and I went to Vegas together and saw the musical Spamalot, experienced Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, watched the Bellagio Fountains, walked the strip, ate some good food, and enjoyed a bit of the blackjack. Good stuff.
Work has been going well for me as I've been doing software consulting out of my own company TecDev since 2006. As always, please contact me if you've got a software need.
Development wise, I've been taking in all of the new features of .NET > (2.0). This includes WCF, WF, and WPF which are big improvements to software development in windows. I'm very excited to see IronPython and the DLR. Silverlight finally provides a supported cross-platform (mac,phone,windows) .NET solution to help us move past HTML. Exciting stuff.
I've been continuing research on visualizing my MRI data in the Visible Dave Project. I'm hoping to get something together soon for visualization. I am currently learning CMake, VTK, ITK, and FLTK to segment my brain structures in 3d. Such amazing open source code!
I've become even more geeky and connected with passing time....and I didn't think it was possible! But I'm now doing quite a few social networks and web 2.0 thangys...
Well, that about does it for this one. That wraps er all up. Thanks for stopping by.
