Work updates: New work with Bosch & a day of workshops at Mozfest

October 8, 2015 | By |

Two things that have been keeping me busy for a while (and will continue to do so):

Building bridges with BoschSI

Together with Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino (Designswarm) I’ve been working with the good folks over at Bosch Software Innovations on building bridges between the company and the #iot, startup, designer, and developer communities. Focused around a conference, this is one of several projects to foster collaboration between the various scenes, actors and disciplines that make up the larger #iot ecosystem.

More on this soon.

Connected Home at Mozfest

In early November I’ll be headed to London for Mozfest for a few days of connected home fun. In a highly collaborative (and I daresay agile) fashion, Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Marcel Schouwenaar & Harm van Beek and I will be taking over a space inside the Global Village, a series of spaces that explore all things “connected home/space” in its various facets.

For me this is a bit of a singularity event in that it combines a whole bunch of strands and projects I’ve been working on:

Working closely with these fine people is the best thing ever. To say I’m very much looking forward to these few days would be an understatement.

SolidCon notes (part 1)

June 25, 2015 | By |

It’s been great to catch up to all the folks in the field in one place, and to check up on what’s going on in San Francisco.

Below, for future reference and largely unsorted & unedited, some notes & links. This is the quick & dirty version, I’m paraphrasing roughly and hope I’m not misrepresenting. Proceed at your own risk.

Monthnotes for June 2015

June 22, 2015 | By |

For quite a while I haven’t managed to write regular #weeknotes. However, I do like writing regular updates and they tend to turn out to be quite useful as a reference. Well, turns out that a lot happens in one month, so here’s part 1 of this month’s notes.

June, so far, has been all about #iot in its various forms (connectivity in cities, in farms, in homes…), and it has seen a surge in conference-ish stuff – if such a thing is even possible compared to months of ThingsCon-related work. Also, I’ve spent most of the month on the road, mostly in Portland and – as of now – San Francisco, where I am to attend SolidCon and catch up with a bunch of folks. So lots of interesting conversations throughout the month.
