Week 319

Not much to report this week. For Free Birds we made plans for the next sprint, writing user stories and grooming our backlog. We hope to start the work on this soon. For TEDASUKE I had a final meeting with our client SodaProducties and talked through their next steps with them, in particular what to […]

Week 285

The best news last week was the go-ahead on SHACHI. We’re excited to start work on that in the new week. Work on the next version of Camparc has started for the STRP biennal. Kars ran a workshop at Berenschot together with Jeroen van Mastright. As research for the workshop I looked to find dilemmas […]

Week 281

To make the most of the first full workweek of the new year Alper arrived from Berlin to work with me at the Utrecht studio on a number of things. We kicked off our second project with KLM on Wednesday. I went over to “building 600” on Schiphol Noord to share our preliminary ideas for […]

Week 274

At the start of this week Alper was still in NYC after enjoying another excellent edition of PRACTICE. He did some work on Bycatch with Subalekha and otherwise enjoyed the city before heading back to Europe on Tuesday. While he was making the crossing, I participated in the first Tegenlicht meetup in Utrecht. We watched […]

Week 268

After a false start on Monday due to a lingering head cold I was back in action on Tuesday. We made good progress this week on KUMA (our project with KLM on game-based learning) and on Bycatch (our card game about drones surveillance and remote warfare). Let’s start with KUMA. We processed the outcomes of […]

Week 265

Kars spent last week in between two major events having just finished Camparc he prepared some playful workshops to run at the opening of Vechtclub XL, our Utrecht base of operations. One of these was an iteration on our Playing with Rules workshop but made accessible for a larger audience. Think Parcheesi meets Nomic. We […]

Week 262

This week I was joined in Utrecht by Alper who had just returned from his holiday in the Austrian Alps. Most of our time was spent on Camparc again. Aldo started work on the four balls we’ll need for the main event. Alper assisted him with software development to get the video streams from the […]

Week 256

Last week I traveled to Utrecht to do some maintenance work on an old project. I took the opportunity to work at our Utrecht office and check out the Vechtclub XL’s new cafe De Klub. I am severely impressed how the venue is shaping up to become Utrecht’s number one destination. Another old project that […]

Week 255

This week started on a high note with the opening of restaurant De Klub at Vechtclub XL—the creative workspace in which our Utrecht studio is located. It is a lovely space serving good food and drink (including fine coffees) but most importantly a great place for serendipitous encounters with other Vechtclub residents and people from […]

Week 241

An intense week, not in the last place because of Alper’s physical presence at the Utrecht studio for the whole week. It was time for another OKR review and we prefer to do those live in meatspace. As always, we graded ourselves, came to some harsh realisations and adjusted course accordingly. Building an applied game […]
