2012 could have ended up much worse of a year than it actually did. While I didn’t make good on some of the 2012 plans, I got through the year and landed on my feet.
Here are some of the lessons I learned this year:
December 23, 2012 – 3:19 pm
The year 2012 has finally come to an end. It wasn’t without its personal and professional challenges but nonetheless my year ended on a happy note.

Takeaway: Will Kelly reviews Projectbook, a new iPad productivity app that combines note taking and to-do lists.
Projectbook is a new iPad productivity app that combines note taking and task management. Theory IO Corporation is betting that iPad users will spend $6.99 (USD) for a powerful organization tool that isn’t dependent on a Wi-Fi connection. After all, spotty Wi-Fi or cell signals make it hard to retrieve documents and other bits of information in the cloud.
Let’s take a closer look at Projectbook, which I’ve been testing for a few weeks now.

My last official day at my day job is September 14th so it seems time for another edition of Random And Recent Projects. Here are my random and recent projects from the last few weeks:
- Job hunt! Job hunt! Job hunt! I am an experience senior technical writer with writing experience across multiple industries. Check out my LinkedIn Profile for more information about my professional experience, background, and links to my published writing. Contact me to request a resume, secure my services for a project, or to bring me in for an interview.
- Opening myself up to contracting again. I was a staff employee for three years after spending a big chunk of my professional technical writing career as a contractor. As my availability page states, Will Kelly is now available for a new full-time or contract position in the Washington, DC/Northern Virginia area beginning September 17, 2012. The big focus for me right now is to get back to writing on a challenging project sometime soon.
- Writing more for CNET TechRepublic.com. While my work regularly appears on the Tablets in the Enterprise and Smartphones blogs, you may see my name pop up in other parts of the site.
- Bought an Android tablet. I purchase a Google Nexus 7 tablet because I wanted to learn about what Android so I can open myself up to some Android tablet writing assignments after being solely focused on iOS for a while now.
- Learning Joomla. I migrated willkelly.com to Drupal last year in a fit of boredom and desire to learn something new. Now, I am building a site out using Joomla that should go online sometime in October.
- Reading. I’ve been doing a lot of professional reading and got some interesting personal reading done by the pool last summer.
- Office 365. I’ve been keeping my SharePoint skills sharp using Office 365.
This isn’t my first layoff so I am not letting myself grow complacent and in fact I am looking forward to what the future holds.

Takeaway: Yammer, the enterprise social network, has a capable iPhone app that can help mobile users stay in touch with their coworkers. Will Kelly demonstrates the basics of the Yammer iOS app.
Yammer, the enterprise social network and recent Microsoft acquisition, is actually quite iPhone friendly. The Yammer iOS app lets iPhone users get access to their organization’s enterprise social network, so they can monitor their feed plus send and receive messages from other network members.
One of Yammer’s goals is to replace the email inbox, and the Yammer iOS app helps extend this new breed of social enterprise to mobile users.

Microsoft Office 365, a cloud-based collaboration platform, is starting to get a lot of attention from Small to Medium Businesses (SMBs) and enterprises wanting to outsource their Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange email, and Unified Communications (UC). While some critics cite Office 365 as not being “mobile enough,” the iPhone setup is quite friendly and certainly a time-saver for organizations that are used to managing more complicated smartphone/email server setups in house.
