Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

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 to work on ASARI1. We’re real­ly hap­py to be work­ing togeth­er with our old friends over in Ams­ter­dam and we think we have found a way that suits both of our skills very well.

Joined in the studio by @alper today.

I was fin­ish­ing prepa­ra­tion for SAME for which I flew out to Munich at the end of the after­noon. Which meant I missed This Hap­pened Utrecht #16 and din­ner with that set. Kars says that the sto­ry behind the Philips Hue lamps skunk works was the best one.

We worked on the new ver­sion of Beesten­bende through­out this week, com­ing up with a detailed redesign and going through that with the Uni­ver­siteitsmu­se­um. Kars talked a bit with our friends over at the GEE­lab in Karl­sruhe while I spent the day in Munich facil­i­tat­ing a work­shop togeth­er with Sebas­t­ian.

I flew back that same night and spent Wednes­day and Thurs­day at Hub­bub going over our plans for the next year with Kars using the OKR frame­work by Google which is prov­ing to be just mea­sur­able enough for our taste. We input all of that in our Asana and we’re good to go for the rest of 2013.

Dirk Vis post­ed the last sum­ma­ry of Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie which has turned out into a mis­sive from a dis­tant future and we still have a spot open in our Utrecht stu­dio for an enter­pris­ing cre­ative type.

Kars end­ed the week with impromp­tu drinks with Sander and bits of Vlam­beer and Monoban­da while I spent Fri­day mak­ing the rounds of Ams­ter­dam and vis­it­ing our friends over at Bruns&Niks and Hack­ers and Founders:

Let’s call it an appe­tiz­er for this Fri­day’s FATSEVEN.
