First Impression (6) - iSketchNote, A Perspective View

I love drawing, but I've never given myself a chance to become any good at it. I love my iPad (iPad Air) too. Hence, when  I saw a device, the iSkecthNote, that happily married the two I didn't hesitate to help fund it, when it was introduced on the crowdfunding website, Kickstarter.

Next year we will be spoilt for choice with the Kaiser Chiefs and Paloma Faith performing, amongst others. We are spoilt for choice. Anyway, this blog entry is a continuation of the last one about Diversity at the Brighton Centre.
