2007 was a Good Year for Me

Dear Reader,

In 2007 I was privileged to achieve the following in my career as Editor-in-Chief of DevZone.

  • Attended 9 conference
  • Visited 3 foreign countries
  • Attended 2 barCamps
  • Spoke at 2 conferences
  • Started 2 podcasts
  • Started 2 web projects.
  • Had 1 article published in php|architect
  • Spoke at 1 PHP User Group
  • Wrote my first book
  • Was Master of Ceremonies at my second PHP conference

So yeah…2007 was good…but 2008 is looking even better.

Until Next Time,

I’ve been published in Dr. Dobbs!

Dear Reader,

Wow, I wrote this article back in May/June and it finally got published! “PHP: The Power Behind Web 2.0“. This was the very first version of the FNN that I wrote. I used the concept in “Flex and PHP: Party in the Front, Business in the Back”.

Thanks to Andi because I’m sure without his name on the article, they wouldn’t have given me a second glance.

That makes two magazine articles this year and I’ll miss my other goal for the year, a book published, by a month or so.

It’s been a productive year.

Until next time,

I’m in Print Again!

Dear Reader,

w00t! I’m back in print. It’s been a long drought (10 years since my last FoxPro Advisor article?) but I’m BACK BABY!

Everybody reading this blog (both of you) rush right out and buy a copy of php|architect. Then, after an appropriate amount of time, write them and tell them how wonderful the August 2007 issue is. Make sure you compliment them on selecting my Flex and PHP article!

Until next time,

Writing vs. Blogging

Dear Reader,

I’m not sure why – maybe it’s because it ends with a Truman Capote quote and I’m currently reading one of his books, maybe it’s because the inner theme hits all too close to home – but I found myself reading and re-reading Tony Long’s “You, To, Can Right Like a Blogger”.

It’s a quick read and an interesting one.

The original Truman Capote quote is “That’s Not writing, that’s typing” and is my second favorite Capote quote. The first being:

Writing stopped being fun when I discovered the difference between good writing and bad and, even more terrifying, the difference between it and true art. And after that, the whip came down.

For a short person, he was pretty deep. One day I want to be able to think as deeply as him…and Fred.

Until next time,
