As I am last couple of years interested in gamification methods for creating projects and curating exhibitions, as well as working on participation of the audiences, I always search for new toys, ops tools for delving into the processes of tinkering and idea making. Recently I started to study online UX (User Experience) Design in order to enhance the way I create my projects, either within the project management or as a simple weekend project to stretch my grey cells with some new idea or electronic object.
Here are some of the gems in this area I stumbled upon in October and November – to be considered the darkest months of the whole year, or maybe not. So, let’s see what do we have here:
The Start-up Game cards (I’ve found this last October at the Museum Shop in the Science Centre NEMO in Amsterdam). The game is interesting and it directs you through project creating.
Hello World in different programming languages makes it a sort of a geeky poetry too through the medium of coding.
Very nice article on programming as a poetry: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/programming-is-poetry-f2eabbe181f8
Recently I realized that I haven’t post anything here for three years. To make it short, I had a digital overload after years of intensive multitasking, digital perception of time, procrastionation and fragmented concentration after heavily using Twitter. It took me about 5 years to declutter myself from it. I guess I’m ready to be back with recreational semi-private blogging few times per month.
Isn’s this a lovely statement after so many years?! :o)
Or to be more polite…

Good to see ya!
I’m in the process of curating exhibition titled Gaming Playground, between tinkering, soldering and re-thinking about the set up of the exhibition, finding places for reading on gaming. Very glad there is free Croatian version of Ian Bogost‘s book How To Do Things With Video Games published by MaMa and Libra Libera: http://monoskop.org/images/f/f3/Bogost_Ian_Kako_ciniti_stvari_videoigrama_2-up.pdf
