60before60

This is what I’ve arrived at so far, obviously they’ll evolve and change over the ten (TEN!) years this will go for. Some items still need to be fleshed out, but I know I want to do something around the general topic.

Fortunately I have a bunch of items carried over from the 50 project to kick me off (last project’s failure is this project’s … whatever). Stating the obvious, these are the ones in blue with (50) appended.

I’m planning to have the 60 settled on by the end of 2017.
