‘Playful Design for Activism’ at E-Motive Day 2015

At the start of this year I was invited to demo Standing and to speak at E-Motive Day, a joining of innovative civil society organisations interested in (as they put it) North-South exchanges. In my lecture I talked about how Standing works and why it is interesting for civil society organisations (or NGOs). I also […]

Week 251

We kicked off this week on Tuesday following the extra-long Pentecost weekend with a review of the work that lead up to Standing‘s launch at Mediamatic. After taking stock of the way it was received, we strategised a bit and settled on a direction for the next few iterations. We drew up a list of […]

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 […]

Most of last week for all of us was spent on Standing, our app for playful activism which saw public release (announcement). Responses have been more than positive and we have had people standing from all over the world already. One of our biggest inspirations, Bernie De Koven called it an example of inactivism. We […]

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 […]

Slides and notes for ‘Fevered’ at Mob Fest: Thinking Mobile

I was asked to present at the first evening of Mob Fest, a 3-day mini festival on mobile games in the broadest sense of the word. Below are my slides and notes for the talk. The evening was […]

My talk at Ignite Amsterdam 4

Here’s a selection of the 20 pictures I showed at Ignite Amsterdam 4, and the words I managed to cram into the 5 minutes I had available to me. It’s about some of the things that excite me, some of our recent work (most notably PLAY Pilots) and some of our new projects on the […]
