Quite possibly the speech of the century so far. My favorite soundbite from Daniel Hannah:
Prime Minister, you can not carry on forever squeezing the productive bit of the economy in order to fund unprecedented engorgement of the unproductive bit. You can not spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt.
It is well worth your time to watch this speech twice:
To start this blog back up after a long hiatus I thought it may be useful to recap the initial goals of the site and a brief history of where it’s been. I’d also like to explain where I think it’s going, but I don’t quite have that figured out yet.
Goal: To be the number one site on the search results when a Google user searches “John Wilson.”
The point and the challenge is that I have such a common name. When I started this blog I thought having the number one search result on Google would be a great resume builder and new age business card. I checked tonight – after not updating for more than six months, and I’m the number three link under John Wilson!
Where is John Wilson?
As I was trying to think about how to get back into this, I began thinking about all the places I currently have a presence on the web. I was shocked at how many there were that were connectible to what others are doing:
Just to name a few. All of which can be traced back to me. Wierd. It’s very easy to just sign up for things.
Where are we going?
Great question. I have lots of travel pictures, which would take “Where is John Wilson” much more literally. There is also this voyage to the top of the search results. I’m going to start working as a boxing judge soon, and a football official in the fall. We’re doing lots of great things at work… there is a serious paradox of choice here. The most important thing will be to keep adding interesting content to move to the top of the Google rankings.
