    Something else: And now for something completely different!

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

    I'm really hoping for it to be the year of Desktop Linux. Oh! Wait! That was 3 years ago for me. I don't care when the rest of the world catches up!

    Beijing will be officially designated the capital of the Ming Dynasty at the same time the Forbidden City, the Chinese seat of government, is completed.

    Hang on a minute...

    Python lovers realize that significant whitespace can be even more fickle than a significant other and discover there are more than 50 ways to leave your lover. (Assuming that one may refer to anyone or anything that results in your getting, ahem, "screwed" can be referred to as a "lover".)

    It helps to remember that the primary goal is to drain the swamp even when you are hip-deep in alligators.

    Something else: Perl 6

    ...or maybe something else: IPv6

    I voted "Something else" because I'm sure that 2014 will be the year of something else.

    I voted for "Crystallography," because in the continued absence of ponies, sparkly stuff is the best!
      And x-rays, don't forget the x-rays!

    Every year is the year of the family farm to me. That is how family farms keep going.

    At the risk of sounding kiss-ass, the family farm shares some characteristics with Perl.

    Both require a broad understanding of numerous subjects for one to be successful with them.

    Each is an environment which both impacts and is impacted by it's inhabitants.

    Additionally, the quality of the resultant product of each is a responsibility which is both granted by, and made challenging by, the nature of its broad capability.

    Probably most notable of all, is the fact that neither would survive were it not for the communities, both directly and indirectly related, which have developed around and through them, and which exist because of them.

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    The Brain is coming to Europe (hopefully bringing Pinky with him) to farm families? This promises to be a good year!
