Starting over, a very belated new year.

Hello.  It's been a while.  I've been thinking about what to do with this blog.  I don't think I've run out of things to say having to do with community, but I also don't have enough to say to make for a daily update of that would be useful to me or anybody else.  

I think it's time to grow the focus here, to include larger professional themes and also the things I'm learning and exploring in an effort to grow my brain and my career.  To that end I'm aiming for twice a week.  I really liked doing the Friday book reviews and I intend to start that up next week (after I read something).  I've got a mile high stack of books I've been meaning to get to for a while, and I'm also going to try to work my way through the design lessons at Hack Design, because I've long felt that design is a thing I'm interested in but terrible at.  I notice bad design when it's bugging me, but I don't have the skills to fix it or even the language to explain it properly when I see it.  So I'm going to go learn stuff, and thrill all six of you with the details, I'm sure.
