This week we were mostly hard at work with current projects. Several things in finishing phases. Nothing too new there.
Meeting and team room name competition winner was selected. Matti won and the names will be Valhalla, Asgard, Ragnarok, Odin and Thor. Quite Norwegian. Congrats to him! I’m not bitter even though I became second and third. Special thanks to people in Twitter who gave me good ideas for the names. We didn’t win, sorry.
About half of the company is finally heading to the UX Lx conference in Lisbon, Portugal. The damn ash cloud from Iceland has just made a comeback and how we get to Portugal on Tuesday morning is still uncertain. Currently the airspace seems quite clear over Germany but who knows what the cloud will do. Anyway if conference goers actually get there Twitter will probably be quite busy with #UXLX tagged tweets this week. In fact, it already is.
An important announcement: we are organizing a workshop as part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 Ideas Forum -day. The workshop deals with our recent favorite subject: Urban screens and information design for urban context. Read Sami’s more thorough blog post about the topic.
That’s it for now. See you in Portugal!
