Trajectory Book 1 reaches v3.0!

Today I put the finishing touches on a new set of edits for Trajectory Book 1 and sent it forth into the cloud. This is probably the biggest update since v2.0, which was itself a fairly major milestone in the book’s existence.

Countdown Deals, Marketing and November

This week, you might have seen a number of Twitter or Facebook ads show up in your stream for Trajectory Book 1. While I didn’t pick friends directly, it means the ad targeting “sciency, tech-savvy, smart-looking people” found you and included you in the population.
