It's one of those yearly things, scheduled for less than two months from now. Frankly, I'm a little surprised that no one else -- Paul Adams is a usual suspect -- has bunged up some badges for this year yet. So here's my entry for Akademy 2013 in Bilbao, showcasing, as always, my most excellent kolourpaint skills. And, like it says on the tin (brass? what material are badges made of anyway), Akademy doesn't fit my schedule this year either. My only remaining hope is to integrate the conference with a three week train-and-bicycle vacation for two adults and two kids.
