Gelukkig Nieuwjaar

May I be the first to welcome you to the New Year. Sure, others may have wished you a happy one, but has anybody actually welcomed you yet? I'm currently in Belgium, so I've had that much longer than most of you to get settled in and I think you're gonna like it. It's a lot like last year's model, but with added sixage. Of course, if you don't like it you've only gotta wait 363-or-so-days until the next one becomes available.

Seriously though, it's at this point when we're supposed to look back over the year that's gone by and look forward to the year to come. My attempts to co-ordinate an collective review of 2004 were not entirely succesful, so I'll leave the looking back to your own recollections. As for the looking forward your guess is as good as mine as to what'll happen and I don't want to stick my neck out quite yet (maybe tomorrow). In lieu of my own take on things check out Jeff Vail's collection of possibile happenings in 2006 which is very interesting, if a little worrying.

In entirely unrelated news, I now have a Flickr account (whence the photo originates) which will -eventually I'm sure - host the photographic evidence of my existence. Or maybe some pictures I like. One way or another, those of you interested in what I look like (your mistake) can now satisfy that curiosity. In case there's any confusion, I'm not the snowman.
