Jim has a new blog
As we enter the new year, it's important to look at the things that we do, and consider how we might do them better. I've written about Simplify, Standardize, Automate, and I decided I should take my own advice. So I'm moving my blog to the University blog system.
You may not be aware, but the blog that I've hosted at http://www.tc.umn.edu/~jhall/ is manually-edited, and I wrote a series of small scripts to create the blog and link everything together. It was great to get started, but using the University's blog ("UThink") makes more sense - I'll let them worry about upgrades, about space, about online editing support. So in a sense, by moving my blog to UThink, I've helped to simplify part of my work life. Now I won't need to update any scripts to support new features - features that UThink already supports.
How are you applying Simplify, Standardize, Automate to your work in 2009?
