Happy New Year 2012 everyone !

Happy New Year 2012 everyone ! I hope you have had a good start into the New Year and hopefully don’t start it with too many items sitting in your in-box and waiting for you to get you into the same hectic and trouble like every year.

Still looking for some good New Year resolutions ? Check out this Lifehacker article: Top 10 Easy-to-Keep Resolutions for This New Year. And here are some more general hints and insights about making New Year’s resolutions: The Science Behind New Year’s Resolutions (and How to Use It to Achieve Yours)

Don’t need any of those ? I don’t have any but I actually like this one from Garfield.

May be you are just curious about the most successful blog postings on Lifehacker last year ? Here they are: This Is the Best of Lifehacker 2011: about How-To guides, DIY projects, photography, Mac and linux downloads, desktops and workspaces, browser extensions and Android apps. How about starting an information diet this year ? Or some very basic means to improve your health: “A Half-Hour Walk Can Make a Big Difference, Even If It’s Your Only Activity” ?

Many seem to say the world will end this year: the Bible, the Maya Calendar, Nostradamus, http://www.polereversal.com/. Most likely this will be a mis-interpretation of “information” one can find there or elsewhere; don’t forget my last posting from last year: Common knowledge doesn’t exist. : It is more a question of belief which evidence you accept and who you trust … and how you interpret information.

Nevertheless, even if the world would end this year, let’s just continue to do what we do now, let’s do it right and with our full power, let’s follow the philosophy of Martin Luther, to whom the following quote was attributed:

“If I knew that tomorrow was the end of the world, I would plant an apple tree today.”
