Recently picked up this Isaac Asimov collection of four short stories, with this interesting sixties cover. I’m trying my technique of some post reading doodles to help my memory, and enjoyment. It was new to do short stories, and good to pause at the end to do a little drawing. I think I need to watch that I don’t try to illustrate the story, but instead take bits that will act as signposts for me.
My post reading sketchnote from ‘The Blind Assassin’ by Margaret Atwood. It took a while for me to get into it, but then it was really enjoyable. Some evocative passages and convincing backdrop to a well told story. The multiple narratives and switches never felt contrived.
Really enjoyed this book, and my notes don’t do it justice. I’ve captured the main points but left out all the comprehensive references to studies. I need to revist the third part of the book, which was a practical toolkit.
Whilst posting my sketchnotes from the OER15 conf a good question was asked about how to share and attribute the pics I was posting on twitter. I realised that I didn’t have any licencing info on the notes so rectified that by putting a ‘CC-BY’ on the sketchnotes, and creating a definitive place for them to live.

Recently read ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’ by Ursula LeGuin, and frustrated with the amount of books I’ve read and enjoyed that have subsequently evaporated from my memory, I decided to sketchnote a summary of what I remembered immediately having finished convinced that it will ‘fix’ it more permanently.

Synchronicity is cool - was just thinking about how to write this book that i’ve started, and along came this brill google hangout.
We all got some homework to watch this keynote on writing good software. It was enjoyable and thought provoking. Been a while since I’ve done a youtube video - the opportunity to pause (but not too often) makes it a little more relaxing.
Nice examples of product design illustrating user experiences. Also liked the distinction of customer/user experience.
