I didn’t make a resolution for 2009 but at localgovcamp in June I made a pledge:

‘Be passionate, be pursuasive, persevere and share’

I think this has stood me pretty well for the second half of the year and is sentiment I’ll be taking with me into 2010.

This year has been a fascinating and exciting journey for me professionally and academically. I finally feel as if the freaks and geeks of my beloved online are starting to make a real difference. Slowly, with plenty of frustration, but also with imagination, creativity and insight I can only dream of.

Without gushing too much it has been an honour to share ideas and conversation with so many passionate and inspirational people. I’m truely excited to see what is built in 2010 on the foundations laid this past year and having more talk with more people about social web for social good (and no doubt banging on about why devolved authorship doesn’t work!)

Wishing you all the best for the 2010!
