Weekly review: Week ending November 9, 2008

| weekly

This week:

  • Got ready for the second release of my Drupal-based project. Things are going well!
  • Attended the Women in IBM Networking Group’s executive mentoring session. Realized I don’t want to become an executive considering the compromises people make. ;)
  • Not only survived the videotaping of my Top 10 Web 2.0 Tools GBS Consultants Should Try session, but gave the guy a few tips on video production. Played around with Camtasia Studio for making picture-in-picture shows.
  • Attended the HR.com/SelectMinds corporate social networking teleconference session on new hire onboarding. No surprises, although picked up a few good stories about Southwest and other companies.
  • Booked my flight to Montreal.
  • Dropped by hacklab.to. Ran into Jed. Good conversation about job-hunting, social networking, Emacs, etc.
  • Played around with CiviCRM for personal contact relationship management.
  • Helped out with a talk on mentoring by telling my story about blogs.
  • Mindmapped and storyboarded Montreal talk.
  • Printed out necessary forms for permanent residency application.
  • Tweeted much more than before, thanks to iPod Touch.

Next week:

  • Push release-2 to production server.
  • Document release procedure so that other people can do it in the future (and so that I can take it with me to future projects).
  • Finish whatever enhancements I have time to do.
  • Deliver session in Montreal on students and Web 2.0 at work.
  • Meet up with lots of interesting Montreal-basedpeople, including friends I haven’t seen in a while.
  • Fill in one of my permanent residency forms.
  • Finish black skirt.
  • Mail package to Randell.
