Top of 2007

With 2007 coming to an end I thought it would be a good time for a little reflection on the year that saw me spend almost 1/3 of it abroad in foreign lands and when Skype went down Randomwire went up. The year has flown past at incredible speed so goodness knows what 2008 will hold but fingers crossed there will be more adventures abound in my 6th year of blogging (I can’t quite believe its been that long since this all began!).

Here are the top 10 statistically most popular posts of 2007:

  1. Skype Down Worldwide
  2. Day 2 : Lost
  3. Mudchute Chilli Farm
  4. O2 SMS Woes
  5. Web Application Ubiquity
  6. iWant
  7. Day 4 : Crash & Duck
  8. South Korea
  9. Analogue People
  10. Englishman in Beijing

My personal unsung favorites of 2007:

  1. The Future Awaits
  2. E-Brain Construct
  3. Back to School
  4. Megalopolis
  5. Sheep Head

I had a stab at redesigning the blog earlier in the year but everything I tried ended up looking worse than what was there before so I’ve abandoned that idea for now. My feeling is that more minimalist is the way to go, all these widgets popping up all over the place are generally annoying fuzz in my opinion. Seeing as an increasing number of people are choosing to consume information through RSS the actual design is, in some respects, becoming less important as most people will never see it anyway. As ever content is king and this is something I hope to focus more on in 2008 (time permitting) with more in-depth posts on various topics interesting to me. Check back Jan 1st for the beginning of this 🙂
