HI @glad2be I was a Chrome beta tester in 2008 and 2009 (Chromium devs) so watched the progress with awe. Also, was in on Rockmelt beta and Duck Duck Go too. Each browser has it’s own unique uses – I use all these, and others, but Chrome is my default for web development. Chrome is the BEST browser for general usage. You made a wise choice.
Hi Ann @annfurnivall I know so much about you now; just from all your posts in this club. I feel like we’ve known each other for longer than we have. You have a unique perspective because you have a successful business offline that uses the web to enhance and grow your customer base. You’ve done well.
My best discovery for 2012? That I like my freedom!
1 – I was asked to re-up a writing contract with a major software development company and declined — too many short term deadlines and not enough money to justify the headaches.
2 – Dropped a client (of 8 years, no less) who depended on me for literally everything online and did not understand that “no” means NO. I can’t work more hours for the same money!
3 – I’ve been throwing out the old contracts and getting new ones written whereby clients will hold more responsibility for their online accounts. Sometimes you come to a point where you just have “too many irons in the fire.”
There is more but I bet you get the picture – my discovery over the past year is not one of outside influences (software, web apps, etc.) but internal processes, that need to be streamlined.
At any rate, looking back, it’s been a great year of “firsts and lasts”, but not what most folks would think of in terms of “discovery.”
