I nearly forgot about last week’s notes even though I wasn’t even that busy. So here I am writing this on a sunday from the couch after having had a nice family brunch and with a La Chouffe close at hand. It’s all good.
Since this is a sunday I will keep it short and strictly chronological for once. Monday started off with a long interview for a book on Utrecht’s creative SMEs. This was followed by a meeting with Alexander and Ianus to evaluate the last This happened – Utrecht and make plans for the next one. On tuesday I visited the HKU for the first of what will become many conversations that I’ll have with my new group of students. Afterwards I hurried to Layar HQ for more design work, which basically took up the rest of the week (punctuated by a lunch with Alper about his trip to Austin and NYC and another one with James about the Urbanode project he is planning at VURB.) Laurens (of LouLou & Tummy fame) has joined us at Layar bringing a whole new dimension to the creative work being done there. It’s exciting to be part of that.
So there we are, a brief review of the week. Now if you don’t mind I have a Chouffe to quaff and a few 3voor12 Draait podcasts to listen to. Bring on week 144!
