scribbles: Vol. 17 – September 10th, 2021

It is September and almost officially fall, and I still sometimes think it is 2020. The history books should consider writing “2021” as, “2020+1”. Fall is the beginning of my favorite time of year and is my second favorite season, after winter.

Hello my friends and happy Friday! I am really looking forward to this issue’s goodies. I hope life is treating you well, and if it is not, know that better times lie ahead. Whatever is happening now is just a small moment in the grand picture of your life. Taking a 40,000-foot view can surprisingly be the solution to almost any problem. In no particular order: Discovered another neat map. The advancement of web technologies over the last decade have greatly influenced the way we interact with maps, and I’ve enjoyed every part of that journey. I like how quickly…
