Alaska Robotics

I had about ten hours on the ground in Juneau after returning from two and a half weeks in Europe and then I jumped back on a plane and flew north.

I spent some time in Anchorage visiting old friends, making new ones, and then flapped on up to Kotzebue for the 2011 Emerging Leaders Dialogue. It sounded like it had potential to be a dry, crusty political event but it turned out to be an absolutely incredible experience. Formative, inspiring, educational.

The best part of the trip was drawing with all the kids along the way. I’ve never been very confident in my drawing skills, I’m still not, but it’s fun to push that fear aside and draw in front of people where all the mistakes and miracles happen out in the open.

I posted a big bundle of pictures on Flickr if you’d like to see more…

    Can you tell me something about Kotzebue. I have accepted a last minute job offer there for 1 year & know nothing about living there. Would you please give me your impression?
