... and pledges to keep doing for years to come. In mid-September, someone at a Tom event asked him a "simple" question. The result came two weeks later in the form of a PDF we posted on the website. Now, Tom has done a major revision, added a page or two, and offers it to you here: What I've Done This Year. (PDF)

I want to get this stuff I do and love and care ever so much about ... RIGHT. I'll never get there—but it won't be for lack of will or effort or aspiration.]
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
