Weekly review: Week ending June 29, 2012

What a productive week! I went to three meetups and posted sketchnotes for two of them. I chatted with John Wiegley about how he uses Emacs, and I transcribed the conversation. I finished reviewing the past ten years of blog posts, spent the weekend formatting them as a screen-optimized PDF, and released it for sale on the Internet. People say that the first sale is always the hardest, and now that I’m over that hump, I’m looking forward to where these adventures take me.
