Week 249

This week’s focus was squarely on our celebration of Standing’s launch at Mediamatic. While Alper and Simon put the final touches on a live display showing all active standing sessions around the world, I got the word out about the event on social media, coordinated with the event producer and got a streaming setup put […]

Week 247

We focused on two projects this week: SHIJIMI and Standing (formerly known as AJI). For SHIJIMI, we wrote a proposal and had a meeting with Heijmans and Rezone to discuss it and other documents drafted earlier by them. Each is a position paper of sorts, and next we need to merge them all into one […]

Week 246

A large part of our time these weeks is spent writing proposals. A lot of things are heading our way so that’s good and it’s a welcome change from making things, which we’ve been doing for the past months. One fairly crystallised concept, codenamed SHIJIMI, is moving forward steadily and another, about Tokyo is in […]

Week 245

Our collaboration with Subalekha (codenamed KEGANI) reached a milestone this week with the submission of a proposal to the Knight Foundation’s Prototype Fund. We talked through the draft proposal on Monday, made some final adjustments afterwards, and sent it in on Wednesday. It’s fingers crossed for now while we wait for a response. I spent […]

Week 243

Looking at my log for last week it’s clear a lot has been going on; work continued on Standing (codename AJI) and we (mainly Alper) did some support work on Beestenbende. In the meantime we are starting up new projects; one is codenamed KEGANI, a collaboration between us and Subalekha who resides in NYC. We […]

Week 235

On Monday I set up my things in the new studio at Vechtclub XL. They had been kept in holding since the move out of Dutch Game Garden two weeks ago. With some help from the kind folk running the space I was up and running around midday. After a short period of working from […]

Week 201

Lots of logistics this week and new projects getting started. I was due to be back in the Netherlands for some meetings so I started Monday in Utrecht at Hubbub HQ while Kars went to Info.nl to work on ASARI1. We’re really happy to be working together with our old friends over in Amsterdam and […]

Week 155

We’re getting into the rhythm of things with Buta. Last week we had our first proper standup meeting. Although it’s hard to tell if there was any actual standing up. The team’s distributed, so we chatted over Skype. Anyway, these should now happen each week on Monday and will help us get to a playable […]

Week 154

Not much to report this week. So this is a short one. Most notably I worked on SAKE some more. I have been collecting things related to collaborative storytelling on Tumblr. I talked about what we’re trying to achieve both with Tim and with Karel and got some useful ideas from both. Then, I sat […]

Week 152

Let’s see what happened last week shall we? I know I’ve been saying that we’re close to finishing Beestenbende for a while now. But we’re close. Honest. Me and Alper did some dotting of Is and crossing of Ts. We now have an actual release client. On Tuesday I had lunch with the Niels ‘t […]
