Top 10 Reasons Not to Pay Attention to My Top 10 Reasons from Last Year

Submitted by Leo Klein on Thu, 12/25/08 (11:44am)
  1. Everything has changed.
  2. If only I knew then what I know now...
  3. Forget 2007. It's 1937 all over again!
  4. Did I even have a 'Top 10' last year?
  5. After a conversation with myself, it turns out that I'm too carried away with the disruptive nature of cloud computing to actually move forward on anything meaningful.
  6. Sorry about No. 5 -- makes no sense to me either. I promise to do better with No. 7.
  7. I'll fight, I'll fight, I'll fight the notion that hindsight is 20/20.
  8. My carbon footprint has no shoes.
  9. While we're waiting around for No. 10, is there anyone alive who still doesn't know that friken TV is switching from analog to digital on Feb. 17, 2009? If they had taken as much time to warn us about the Telecommunications Act of 1996, we might still care.
  10. As Ernie Banks would say, 'All will be fine in 2000 and 9'.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
