Weekly review: Week ending March 28, 2014

I got my printed proof for Sketchnotes 2013 from CreateSpace, yay! I’d already started scribbling in the margins, and then Martina insisted on buying it from me because she wanted to go through it during her trip to China. So I’ve ordered two more copies (one for myself, and a spare), and I’m looking forward to getting them soon.

Lots of talking to people this week: Visual Thinkers Toronto, the Frugal FIRE show, assorted other conversations at HackLab and online. Ooh, and some forays into Python and image processing with simplecv… Next week, I’m sketchnoting a conference, so my schedule is going to be slightly off routine. Should be interesting, though!
