Happy New Year to you all! I hope you enjoyed celebrating the Gregorian calendar’s change in the year. I am currently celebrating with friends – my husband and I have an annual LAN party that runs over New Years weekend, and despite the snow, we have a great turn out.
Looking forward into 2010, I have quite a few things lined up for blogging here…
The SUX Series
In 2008, while frustrated with the Office 2007 packaging, I started the Sarah on User eXperience (SUX) series. I didn’t realize that I’d actually run with it, but in 2009, I had 8 entries on things that had poor user experience or awesome user experience. In 2010, this series will continue.
The SoS Series
This is a new series in 2010 – Sarah on Social (SoS) will cover my thoughts on things related to social media and social networking. From what sites I use and how I use them to why businesses need social media policies but why they shouldn’t be too restrictive, look forward to seeing social media and social networking covered a bit more in 2010.
Toughest Developer Puzzle Ever Lives On
Once again, I’m working on creating puzzles for the Toughest Developer Puzzle Ever v. 2.0. We’re looking for more puzzle creators – so if you’re interested, email us
and we’ll get in touch with you about what we’re looking for and how you can help.

More and more I’m finding myself writing down my thoughts on the joys and pains of being a woman in tech (WiT), so the WiTty Perspectives series will cover my adventures of being a woman in tech and the lessons and words of advice that I have for other women in tech.
Caught in the Web
As many of you know, as part of my day job, I’m a web developer. I’ve always enjoyed web development, and I take great joy in making my web sites working on more than just Internet Explorer. So in 2010, look forward to more blog posts on web technologies, web debugging tools, and other things that I’d find interesting for web developers.
2010 will be an interesting adventure to say the least, and I look forward to sharing my thoughts, my experiences, and my perspective with all of you. If you ever want me to cover something in particular, email me
and let me know what you want to hear.
