2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

I REALLY appreciate their effort and the quality of their hosting offering.  Thank you WordPress…  Below is their cool little summary of my site activity in 2011.  Interesting stuff.

And thank all of YOU for visiting my site.  You have no idea how good it feels to have so many of you see the value of what I have to say and especially you guys who posted so many times.  Please don’t be shy.  I can see how many came, and that’s great, but your thoughts are interesting to me.

2012 is going to be an interesting year for us all.  Office 15 (2013?) hitting the market in the Fall would be my guess and it’ll be interesting mostly to see how Microsoft positions it.  I believe it is time for Microsoft to get out and show people how to use this stuff rather than just hoping they figure it out on their own.  I don’t expect them to do anything though and if so I think we will continue to see Excel and Access lose altitude.  I don’t think it’s enough to just hope that people “get it”.

So despite a lot of cool new features and some BIG surprises, that I can’t talk about, I predict more of the same as we “believers” fight the fight for Excel and Access on our own with little or no help from above.  We all have to ask ourselves whether it’s worth it and each will have to draw their own conclusions.

It’ll be interesting, but let’s keep in touch as it all happens.



Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 29,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
