That was the year that was

Hmm. A funny old year, 2008. I can’t say I will miss it on certain levels. However there were a lot positives—or at least, notable moments:

Thoughts / notes for 2009?

  • London Developer Co-op! Woo hoo!
  • Yeah yeah, DominoWiki… would you believe me if I said I have a release almost ready? No, thought not. Well I do. Honest guv!
  • Blogging has been more miss than hit this year: I don’t really do resolutions, but I may make an exception there
  • XPages: come to papa…

So, here’s to a healthy interesting 2009 for you all, and thanks for coming back.


  1. Nice post, but I preferred the album:

    Happy New Year!Ben Langhinrichs#
  2. Can we expect DominoWiki presented in XPages goodness?Mac Guidera#
  3. Based on my initial investigations (e.g. a decent Java engine and some lovely server-side Javascript) XPages is a great fit for the wiki. Whether I will code such a thing is quite another matter given how long the latest version has taken to get out ;-) Ben Poole#
