McNew Year prediction

Life is a continuum. Each morning you awake assuming it is your last. There is no difference between Dec. 31st and Jan 1st to me.

But a young buddy pressed for some sort of pronouncement to mark the changing of the calendar. (I eschew resolutions so as not to tinker with perfection.)

Spontaneously I predicted that Rick McCharles would listen to even more audiocasts in 2008. Watch even more online video than in 2007. And “read” even more audio books.

I’m off to a good start. Waiting on my digital bookshelf are:

  • The Google Story: Inside the Hottest Business, Media, and Technology Success of Our Time – Vise & Malseed
  • New Europe – Michael Palin
  • Shadow Divers: The True Adventure of Two Americans Who Risked Everything to Solve One of the Last Mysteries of World War II – Robert Kurson
  • The Golden Compass, His Dark Materials, Book 1 – Philip Pullman
  • Deep Black: Payback – Stephen Coonts
  • The Coming Economic Collapse: How You Can Thrive When Oil Costs $200 a Barrel – Leeb & Strathy
  • The Honourable Schoolboy – John Le Carré
  • The Light That Failed – Kipling
  • Middlesex: A Novel – Jeffrey Eugenides
  • RACE TO THE POLE: TRAGEDY, HEROISM, AND SCOTT’S ANTARCTIC QUEST – Sir Ranulph Fiennes
  • The Prestige – Christopher Priest
  • And I’m currently listening to A Beautiful Mind: The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash. (Not a great book, but a fantastic true story.)

    The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash

    Actually, I finally dropped my monthly subscription to Audible.com as the Calgary Public Library seems to offer more good books on MP3 than I could possibly need.

    (I can still buy books one-at-a-time on Audible or iTunes.)

    Digital on demand infotainment rocks in 2008.
