Week 249

This week’s focus was square­ly on our cel­e­bra­tion of Standing’s launch at Media­mat­ic. While Alper and Simon put the final touch­es on a live dis­play show­ing all active stand­ing ses­sions around the world, I got the word out about the event on social media, coor­di­nat­ed with the event pro­duc­er and got a stream­ing set­up put […]

Week 247

We focused on two projects this week: SHIJIMI and Stand­ing (for­mer­ly known as AJI). For SHIJIMI, we wrote a pro­pos­al and had a meet­ing with Hei­j­mans and Rezone to dis­cuss it and oth­er doc­u­ments draft­ed ear­li­er by them. Each is a posi­tion paper of sorts, and next we need to merge them all into one […]

Week 246

A large part of our time these weeks is spent writ­ing pro­pos­als. A lot of things are head­ing our way so that’s good and it’s a wel­come change from mak­ing things, which we’ve been doing for the past months. One fair­ly crys­tallised con­cept, code­named SHIJIMI, is mov­ing for­ward steadi­ly and anoth­er, about Tokyo is in […]

Week 245

Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sub­alekha (code­named KEGANI) reached a mile­stone this week with the sub­mis­sion of a pro­pos­al to the Knight Foundation’s Pro­to­type Fund. We talked through the draft pro­pos­al on Mon­day, made some final adjust­ments after­wards, and sent it in on Wednes­day. It’s fin­gers crossed for now while we wait for a response. I spent […]

Week 243

Look­ing at my log for last week it’s clear a lot has been going on; work con­tin­ued on Stand­ing (code­name AJI) and we (main­ly Alper) did some sup­port work on Beesten­bende. In the mean­time we are start­ing up new projects; one is code­named KEGANI, a col­lab­o­ra­tion between us and Sub­alekha who resides in NYC. We […]

Week 235

On Mon­day I set up my things in the new stu­dio at Vecht­club XL. They had been kept in hold­ing since the move out of Dutch Game Gar­den two weeks ago. With some help from the kind folk run­ning the space I was up and run­ning around mid­day. After a short peri­od of work­ing from […]

Week 155

We’re get­ting into the rhythm of things with Buta. Last week we had our first prop­er standup meet­ing. Although it’s hard to tell if there was any actu­al stand­ing up. The team’s dis­trib­uted, so we chat­ted over Skype. Any­way, these should now hap­pen each week on Mon­day and will help us get to a playable […]

Week 154

Not much to report this week. So this is a short one. Most notably I worked on SAKE some more. I have been col­lect­ing things relat­ed to col­lab­o­ra­tive sto­ry­telling on Tum­blr. I talked about what we’re try­ing to achieve both with Tim and with Karel and got some use­ful ideas from both. Then, I sat […]

Let’s see what hap­pened last week shall we? I know I’ve been say­ing that we’re close to fin­ish­ing Beesten­bende for a while now. But we’re close. Hon­est. Me and Alper did some dot­ting of Is and cross­ing of Ts. We now have an actu­al release client. On Tues­day I had lunch with the Niels ‘t […]
