‘Playful Design for Activism’ at E-Motive Day 2015

At the start of this year I was invit­ed to demo Stand­ing and to speak at E-Motive Day, a join­ing of inno­v­a­tive civ­il soci­ety organ­i­sa­tions inter­est­ed in (as they put it) North-South exchanges. In my lec­ture I talked about how Stand­ing works and why it is inter­est­ing for civ­il soci­ety organ­i­sa­tions (or NGOs). I also […]

Week 251

We kicked off this week on Tues­day fol­low­ing the extra-long Pen­te­cost week­end with a review of the work that lead up to Stand­ing’s launch at Media­mat­ic. After tak­ing stock of the way it was received, we strate­gised a bit and set­tled on a direc­tion for the next few iter­a­tions. We drew up a list of […]

Week 249

This week’s focus was square­ly on our cel­e­bra­tion of Standing’s launch at Media­mat­ic.

Week 248

Most of last week for all of us was spent on Stand­ing, our app for play­ful activism which saw pub­lic release (announce­ment). Respons­es have been more than pos­i­tive and we have had peo­ple stand­ing from all over the world already. One of our biggest inspi­ra­tions, Bernie De Koven called it an exam­ple of inac­tivism. We […]

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 […]

My talk at Ignite Amsterdam 4

Here’s a selec­tion of the 20 pic­tures I showed at Ignite Ams­ter­dam 4, and the words I man­aged to cram into the 5 min­utes I had avail­able to me. It’s about some of the things that excite me, some of our recent work (most notably PLAY Pilots) and some of our new projects on the […]
