Design Thinking workshop - End

It was really nice to see professors and big people doing crafting and prototyping like children in the day 02 of Design Thinking workshop. Several interesting prototypes and my group also did a good presentation although they are not very good on their prototyping :)
It was a good inspirational workshop for them as well as us at the end!!

Design Thinking workshop @ Singapore Design Festival 09 - Day 01 over

Parallel to the Singapore Design Festival 09, the Design Thinking workshop is featuring today and tomorrow by professor Okude at CUTE Center, National University of Singapore. I am one of the facilitators and it was a hard day for all of us with brainstormings, fieldworks, and etc. We started the event with an introduction presentation by professor and I believe it went well for today. And it was really interested to see many crazy ideas were generating by the participants... :) At the end of the day all the groups presented their philosophy, vision, and the concept. Looking forward to the final and second day, tomorrow @ 9.30AM  :)

After several busy days

It has been almost 2 months since my last post. First started with the president's visit to Mixed Reality lab and the CUTE Center opening ceremony. Then I went to Athens, Greece for ACE 2009 conference from 29th to 31st of October. See my experience in Athens from this URL. There I presented the Poetry Mix-up short paper and demo the system. Many interesting feedback and comments.
Then the end semester exams and final projects for this semester modules. Soo many extreamly busy hours and days. But finally all finished now. Up and running the engine with full power again!!  :)

new poken digital name card - BarCamp SG4

I have gotten a Poken device from the barCamp SG 4 event held in last weekend. It was a nice event with lots of knowledgeable discussions. I conducted a session on "Poetry for young generation".
