Week 282

A large part of this week was tak­en up by our annu­al OKR review and sub­se­quent reori­en­ta­tion of OKRs for 2015. An inten­sive exer­cise, but seri­ous­ly worth it. The tech­nique helps us build learn­ing into our tiny organ­i­sa­tion, and that’s very valu­able. We’ll share some out­comes of this review in a sep­a­rate blog post soon­ish. […]

Goat rodeo, issue games, and Bycatch

When Sub­alekha was pre­sent­ing Bycatch at Play­ful back in Octo­ber 2014, at some point Ian Wil­ley tweet­ed the fol­low­ing: I was intrigued by the expres­sion “goat rodeo” and imme­di­ate­ly looked it up. It turns out Ian wasn’t refer­ring to games about chas­ing goats with las­sos. In stead, he’s talk­ing about sit­u­a­tions that I tend to […]

Week 272

Last week was a fair­ly qui­et week over at the stu­dio. Kars did the deliv­ery for our engage­ment over at KLM and then got ready to go on hol­i­day to Seoul where he is right now. Bycatch was fea­tured over at Killscreen with a very nice arti­cle. I was sick for most of the week […]

Week 271

These wee­knotes are late because of some irreg­u­lar­i­ties in the stu­dio. Kars is cur­rent­ly enjoy­ing a hol­i­day in Seoul while I have been sick for most of the week. Last week was event­ful so there are the wee­knotes any­way. Last Mon­day we final­ly got around to doing our Q3 OKR review with opti­mistic results. In […]

Week 270

My week start­ed with the sec­ond day of the Asia-Europe Cul­ture Min­is­ters Meet­ing (ASEM)‘s work­shop on play­ful cities. It was a huge plea­sure spend­ing two days with tal­ent­ed peers from Europe, many of whom’s work I admire great­ly. It was equal­ly great to meet Asian prac­ti­tion­ers and hear about the big dif­fer­ences in their local […]

Week 269

We’re mak­ing good progress on Bycatch for which we got a wel­come refo­cus­ing after a sit-down with Joris. Joris him­self was at SPIEL demo­ing Super Duo a card game of his own so he’s def­i­nite­ly an expert when it comes to this kind of thing. We’ll also have a web­site online this week through which […]

Week 267

Let’s hope late wee­knotes does not become a trend but we’re rather busy these few weeks both with client work and prepar­ing the future. I flew back to Berlin last week but now I’m sat in Utrecht again writ­ing this. Last Mon­day we had our KUMA work­shop with KLM which was excel­lent. We look for­ward […]

Week 266

I spent the first half of last week writ­ing stuff for sev­er­al poten­tial projects that are in the pipeline for the end of 2014 and the begin­ning of 2015. Kars was most­ly occu­pied with redesign­ing and pro­duc­ing stuff for KEGANI. The cur­rent title for the project is “Bycatch” which feels like it could be defin­i­tive. […]

Week 264

The delayed arrival of these notes should tell you some­thing about what kind of week last week was: busy. For me, it was all about deliv­er­ing and run­ning Cam­parc. We’ll write more about it soon and are also sift­ing through our copi­ous pho­tos and videos. For now, suf­fice to say we had a more or […]

Week 263

Last week was the penul­ti­mate week for Cam­parc so every­body was heav­i­ly involved in work on that. I did research on how to get videostream­ing to work on OS X whose capa­bil­i­ties seem to have seri­ous­ly regressed. I built a cus­tom app using VLCK­it that does what we want it to do. Aldo Hoeben worked […]
