Speaking at CoCities Salon Amsterdam

Cog­ni­tive Cities cer­tain­ly has been the most stim­u­lat­ing con­fer­ence of 2011 for me so far. (Despite the few short­com­ings I report­ed on ear­li­er.) So I am super glad it is get­ting fol­low-up in the form of a salon in Ams­ter­dam. Tomor­row. And I will be speak­ing. So, Thurs­day June 30 in TrouwAms­ter­dam’s Verdieping: Cog­ni­tive Cities […]

Speaking at dConstruct 2011

I am real­ly pleased to be speak­ing at dCon­struct this year.

You’ll find the abstract I sub­mit­ted below. Have a look at the con­fer­ence site for the rest of the pro­gram […]

Talking about Code 4 at Chi Sparks

Our long­time col­lab­o­ra­tor Alper Çuğun will be at Chi Ned­er­land’s bi-annu­al con­fer­ence to talk about Code 4 (for­mer­ly referred to as Maguro). Code 4 is a per­va­sive game we cre­at­ed for the Dutch Tax Admin­is­tra­tion with the aim of ignit­ing orga­ni­za­tion­al change. Chi Sparks is a con­fer­ence that focuss­es on “the very impor­tant con­tri­bu­tions that […]

Come over and play at Tweetakt

From my win­dow I can see guys build­ing the Twee­t­akt pavil­ion on the Neude square. They’ve start­ed today. Next week, the fes­ti­val starts. And I’m a lit­tle excit­ed because this year I was asked by Twee­t­akt to curate the inter­ac­tive exhi­bi­tion that will be on dis­play at the pavil­ion. Twee­t­akt is a fes­ti­val for per­form­ing […]

Join us for a game of Bocce Drift

So we have five sets of boc­ce balls lying around (or jeu de boules, as we like to call the game in the Nether­lands). They’re left over from our lit­tle stint at NU Grounds. We were plan­ning to run Boc­ce Drift there, but did not get around to it. So let’s play it any­way, in […]

Join us for playful meanderings through Leidsche Rijn this saturday

I’ve always found neigh­bor­hoods under con­struc­tion curi­ous places. There is a strange ten­sion between the place as planned and the place as exe­cut­ed and sub­se­quent­ly lived in. Lei­d­sche Rijn is a new neigh­bor­hood being built in Utrecht (which is my home­town and also where Hub­bub’s stu­dio is locat­ed). When it is fin­ished in 2025 it […]

Upcoming lecture on pervasive games at CIID

Final­ly, I get to lec­ture at my favorite inter­ac­tion design insti­tute, the CIID. If you’re in the Copen­hagen area, do come along. Here’s the descrip­tion: It seems that the brave new play­ful world promised by per­­va­­sive/ur­ban/lo­ca­­tive/al­ter­­nate-real­i­­ty games mavens of the past decade hasn’t real­ly mate­ri­al­ized. Gam­ing hasn’t left the liv­ing room much, it still most­ly […]
