Happy New Year!

You can make some resolutions for 2014! I hope you resolve in technology to try new things and explore! Mess around and figure things out…

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.”

-Neil Gaiman
