Two plus years ago, I decided to take a hiatus from blogging. In addition to a cessation of blogging, I also delisted from Facebook and Goggle+. Dropped off of a bunch of mailing lists. Sort of walked away from an online persona I had spent a bit of time curating. At one point, I had always thought, maybe I'll write a "year later" post to try and put some of my life/career changes that were going on in perspective.
A year came, and I thought about it. But thoughts didn't gel enough, so I put a retrospective aside for the time being, and went back to work. I was happily coding in C with 8K of RAM by that point. Smattered with Python. And then another year went by, and I was amusedly coding in iOS by then.
This morning, I was working my way through a tutorial on Swift (Apple's new language), I thought I'd have a go at it again. It probably won't be (much) about Smalltalk; I have done very little of that in the last 2 years. But I do miss the cathartic process of journaling my passage through programming.
We'll see how it goes.
