I’m always amazed at how different my year turns out compared to my expectations of it in January. In January 2011, I never would have imagined that I have new friends in Morgain, Miles, and Anne. I never would have guessed that I’d have a Twitter account or a solid idea for my dissertation, or that I would have ploughed through Cambodia, or had my Japan-earthquake refugee sister on my floor for a month. Life is interesting like that, eh?
If we’re so lamesauce at figuring out what our own lives are going to be like (okay, maybe you’re better at this than me), how can we figure out the juggernaut we call Internet?
