At our final official Praxis meeting, I shared an overview of my experience as project manager with the rest of the team, and I thought I would share some of those same reflections in a short series of blog posts.

This level of scalability opens up the door to a whole range of projects that would have been impossible with the first version of Neatline, but it also introduces…. More.
The following was co-authored and co-hacked with Claire. Claire and I went to the Arduino Hackday hosted by the Scholars’ Lab on Friday.
