I must admit that video recorders haven’t been on my radar for so long. Considering my earliest childhood memory of being enthralled with gadgets involved a video recorder (my dad was recording me while I kept on asking how it was possible “to watch yourself in the past”), the handy cam became obsolescent when almost all forms of consumer tech (i.e. webcams, mobile phones, compact and DSLR cameras) could record video.

**MIND BLOWN** Toys that come to life with your iPad: Hot Wheels, DC Universe, WWE, Monster High, etc

You know, every time I walk into Datablitz these days I get more and more tempted to pick up a copy of Skylanders. If you go there often, every branch has a store display of ‘Skylanders’ action figures that are not only toys — but are also integral to the Skylanders video game. When you place an action figure onto a “Portal of Power” (which is simply a Bluetooth enabled NFC device) the character comes to life inside the game. So not only do you get a new character to play with in Skylanders, you also get a collectible toy.

2012.

Photos on the front page of CNN. Underwater footage used for a new show on Discovery Channel. My first paperback cover for an international novel. Contributions to the DOT and marine non profit groups. Four whale sharks.

My blog post turned into a play in New York.

China. Korea.

Built 8List with a fantastic team.

Married my wife and today, as we close the year, we welcome a new bundle of joy in our arms.

What a year. *slow clap*
