Drawing, blogging, and semi-retirement: Weekly review: Week ending May 31, 2013

Good week for drawing and writing! I put together a collection of my sketchnotes, drew notes at a workshop (that we printed right then and there), and wrote a lot about what I was learning along the way. Looking forward to more drawing next week, and more experiments too! (Latest experiment: using MapLib’s simple Google Maps API interface to provide a zoomable, pannable view of the one-page guide to learning Emacs… =) This is promising! )
