Chalk this retrospective learning up to "I sort of kind of knew this might be the case, but wanted to try something different anyway."
When I started planning the approach for my 26 Sprints in 2023, I wanted to focus on a theme per sprint. That immediately became a challenge because there's just so. many. things. I'm working with, around, through, and collecting inputs on at any given time.
With that in mind, I'm abandoning the idea of topic-focused sprint themes. This Sprint 2 was originally, "Visualizing Information (Non-Quantitative), Part 1" because I knew I was going to be doing that kind of work during the sprint. I did, but not in the sense that was the original content I was going to publish.
So, for the time being, I'm switching to context-titled sprints, with the new Sprint 3 being "The One That Started in San Francisco" (Monday, January 30 - Sunday, February 12). Astute readers may notice this update is going out on Tuesday February 7th but I've at least done some Sprint 3 content planning over the past week. New posts coming. In the meantime, on to the Orginal Content I did post during Sprint 2, as well as a review of my browser history to share some things you might also find interesting...
