Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

Week 230

Last week went by pret­ty quick­ly and by now it turns out we are almost through this week already before I had a chance to write the wee­knotes. In brief: we were ful­ly engaged prepar­ing deliv­er­ables for CHUTORO.

Kars spent a lot of time knee deep in sci­en­tif­ic mod­els to fur­ther ground our design work. Apply­ing sci­en­tif­ic results to real world solu­tions has been very refresh­ing and it is some­thing we think that many oth­er projects could great­ly ben­e­fit from. We have been lucky to get a sol­id feed of sci­en­tif­ic lit­er­a­ture for this project to work with.

Mean­while I was work­ing on tech­no­log­i­cal re-enact­ment by build­ing an app rely­ing on SMS as its main medi­um of inter­ac­tion. I real­ized that this is the sort of thing that many of my friends have been work­ing on in the ear­ly 2000s. It still takes an awful lot of effort to get things to work across non-inter­net cell phone net­works but it is def­i­nite­ly worth the effort.

Dusting off the Hubbub feature phone

For our SMS needs we are using Nex­mo who have been very easy to set­up and actu­al­ly do work in Ger­many (many oth­er providers say they do but in fact do not).

We worked on this project exclu­sive­ly the entire week and the time we spent made that we were both the­o­ret­i­cal­ly and tech­ni­cal­ly in good shape for this week’s meeting.

Playing Maharaja

In the week­end there was time to play some games. Kars high­ly rec­om­mends Mahara­ja and I rather enjoyed my Dri­ve on Moscow.
