March was a month of traveling.

NY

The first week I spent teaching a high school class in upstate New York.

In the afternoons, I went on cold runs and worked on the Mapbox Android SDK.

I camped out in the school’s darkroom until 1am, blasting Drake and relearning film chemistry.

SF

We packed the new office, in the top floor of the Code for America building.

On the weekend, we biked north to Tiburon.

DC

Next, to regroup with Teen Mom and properly celebrate birthdays with close friends.

CONSUMPTION

Watching: The Man Who Fell to Earth, Seinfeld

Reading: The Hard Thing About Hard Things, How to Win Friends and Influence People, Seasteading, Going into Detail, the start of something new.

Listening: J. Cole: Born Sinner

ELSEWHERE

Eric Theise contributed distributions to simple-statistics, and it’s nearly there. I helped Alex Barth, Ian Dees make openaddresses.io, a project to index & distribute address data. I wrote geocodify, a CSV geocoding tool and landpatch, visualization for our party. The Spanish translation of mapschool went live. The DC Code project got airtime on the Kojo Nnamdi Show.
