Closing Out 2012 for the Mayans

Taking a cue from my friends Dan Miller and Chris Guillebeau I always close out the last few weeks of the year with an analysis of the goings-on for the past 365 days, give or take a leap year. I use this to make plans for the coming year.

As an added bonus, here’s me at 2 years old…
