Resolutions for 2008

I'm not going to bother you with personal resolutions (lose weight, save money, blah blah blah), but rather creative resolutions.

2007 was kind of a watershed year for me in many ways.
My girlfriend, Susan, also had a very productive year, since she started USC film school a year ago.

Of course, it wasn't entirely positive. I dropped the ball on Parry & Carney, and the Dinosauricon continues to languish. (Some day I plan to re-use code from March of Man and Names on NEXUS for a new version, but that day is still far off.)

Well, with 2007 in mind, here's what I'd like to get done in 2008:
  • Launch Names on NEXUS and give a talk on it at this year's ISPN meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia (and also try for an SVP talk or poster). Perhaps start working on a related paper, if applicable.
  • Continue developing March of Man and add several dozen images to it. Continue promoting it and get at least another dozen artists to contribute. Perhaps do a poster or something at SVP.
  • Fix a few remaining issues with the PhyloCode website.
  • Help Susan on her filmic endeavors, and continue to develop a sci-fi concept we started.
  • Continue translating Genesis.
  • Release some ActionScript 3.0 source code into the public domain.
