You may recall me posting during the first half of 2006 about my new obsession with the Sony Aibo robot dog. I set up a web site through which to trade one item for another, spiralling up in value until I actually GOT one of the coveted Aibos. It got off to a good start, a quick trade and a bit of coverage in the regional newspaper. But with convention season I let my attention waver. My desire, on the other hand, never did … but I was no longer doing anything ACTIVE to make it happen.
Well, last weekend the North County Times did a follow-up piece on me and my Aibo Quest … and that has reinvigorated me. I am taking it as something of a New Year’s Resolution to keep more actively involved in this project … and to press forward and (hopefully) get myself an Aibo before it’s time to buy new calendars again.
You can follow my progress over at OneRobotDog.com … or you can wait for me to give you the HIGHLIGHTS here. Either way, I hope to have much Aibo news for you in the coming months.
