Weekly review: Week ending June 12, 2015

Posted: - Modified: | review, weekly

It was a good week for small steps. I've been settling into a new daily routine: a little bit of code, a book, some thinking… In terms of code, I've been focusing on adding D3 visualizations and other smarts to my Angular+Node tracker. I've been reading about thinking and memory, and thinking about what I can build or practice in order to get better at those things. Overall, though, I continue to be taking it easy – letting go of more of my previous commitments, clearing the way for other experiments.
