In Journal on August 13, 2011 at 4:24 pm Lets You Express Yourself Online With Sharpies

Expressing yourself in 140 characters or less is fun, but some long for personal expression that extends beyond Twitter or Instagram. Enter, a new website that lets you doodle anything you want and share it with the world.

All you have to do is visit the website, choose your favorite writing instrument, and doodle away. Once you're done, you can share your creation on Facebook or Twitter. The color and width options are limited, but that'll change once the 5,000th doodle is shared.

Right now the service is web-based, but it'll soon make its way to the iPhone and iPad. It's cute, it's clever and brings you back to your elementary school days. What more could you want?

Visualization 102
This one or two-day course is for those who want to develop their graphic facilitation through learning foundational practices of listening, discerning, seeing, and presencing – as integrated with the basics of drawing. (101 or equivalent as a prerequisite)

Visualization 103
This one-day course is an exploration into the territory of products – how to display information in large scale “knowledge walls”, rich integrated pictures, harvesting into single frame images, and lessons on basic refinement of digital files. (no prerequisite)
