For me, and just for me, I'm setting out to make 2016 the year of cycling. 2015 was just a warm up. I reckon that I did around 1,200 miles last year, which I suppose is OK. But this year I want to make a more determined effort. And a more determined effort – cycling apps and gadgets permitting – to record my distances more comprehensively. And I'll make a start once it stops raining.
In the meantime I've been pondering whether to return to blogging. Proper blogging, that is. Blogging like it's 2008. Just like Ben has promised to do. Except mine won't be responsive. I'll try to be, personally, but Typepad is failing us as a platform for creating responsive content. Take note Typepad: this is a service we pay for, and at the moment we're not getting very good value for money.
But what shall I blog about? Apart from cycling? And haven't I already said enough about design and designing over the years?
Bigger issues, perhaps. Which is all a very long way around urging you to take 10 minutes of your time to read Michael Wolff's (that's the Michael who put the Wolff into Wolff Olins) reflections on war over on Mike Dempsey's blog.
Do that for me. And let's all have the courage to make a brave start by not knowing what to do. Let's devote 2016 to that. As Gandhi would remind us if he were here: we must be the change we want to see in the world.
