2013 Goal Report

So I am running a little behind on my 2013 report, but here it is:

Professional

  1. Contribute to one open-source project – Contributed to ViciDial
  2. Release one open-source project
  3. Write a conference talk
  4. Submit a talk to at least one CFP - Submitted to 3 different conferences.
  5. Learn Python – Still working on.
  6. Attend at least one conference – Was unable to get this to work with my time/finance constraints
  7. Attend at least one user group meeting – The user group in Houston has become defunct.
  8. Write one development blog post each month – As can be seen, this feel flat as well.
  9. Learn Jenkins / Ant integration

Scouting

  1. Attend Wood Badge
  2. Develop 2 last minute Pack Meeting plans

Work

  1. Initiate Github account for distributing tools
  2. Write at least 5 blog posts

I will post my 2014 goals within the next day or two, and will perform better this coming year than in 2013.  Thanks for the support.

Mandates vs. Freedom: “Land of the Free”?

I believe liberals want the best for this country, I really do. I believe they have good intentions, but do they want a freedom of conscience? They seem to always want the government to force people and institutions to abide by their own political agendas that may, in the end, go against people’s values.
