I just read a fantastic description for year 2008: This was a year with a never-ending "Pffffffffffffff" sound.
(by Christoph Winder in Der Standard)
Although this was an exciting year, with my book and my articles coming out and this unexpected (and bombastic) proof that the system is not healthy and needs to be changed - I didn't like it. I am happy that it is almost over and am looking forward to a brilliant 2009. I'll just ignore the speculations about the recession..... It all virtual, anyway.
