Week 327, 328 and 329

It’s been quiet around here due to a big push on wrapping up our current client engagements before the end of the year. Most of our time was spent on HENDO. I headed over to Berlin to spend a few days with Alper in the same room, filling whiteboards as we worked towards a design […]

Another simple week in terms of stuff going on. We devoted the vast majority of our time to Free Birds, putting the finishing touches on the release candidate. We’re getting really close to the finish line now and its a pleasure to be able to tune and tweak things to make them just right. I […]

On Tuesday, I headed to Nijmegen to close off project KOKORO with the client. KOKORO is a digital coach for adolescent mental health. We reviewed the […]

Week 318

Let’s start at the end. On Thursday and Friday I participated in a two-day workshop on the future of energy at FreedomLab. Meanwhile, Alper moved apartments. I learned a lot about the nuts and bolts of our energy system and came away optimistic about the switch to renewables. Alper learned a lot about how to […]
