Tutorial 2!

Date: 23rd January 2018 with Jonathan Kearney This is long overdue! Chicago has been keeping me busy with its biting winter winds and tons and tons of random moments of artistic inspiration.

We simply wanted to explore possibilities. Romain explained that processing is an …

First of all, because of the three rules Jonathan laid out: No worries over grammatical errors Anyone can type/talk at any time, regardless of whether the conversation has moved past a topic Anyone replying to a specific comment should mention that person’s name And second of all, because Skype saves chats!
