Week 218

Why, hello there. I hope you’re all very well.

GFR were down to three this week as James M is taking a well deserved holiday. We weren’t lonely in the office though: We’ve been hosting a couple of special guests all week (more on this shortly) and Tom Stuart joined us for the first part of the week too. If you haven’t already, you should check out Tom’s explanation of the work he did to help demo at the Design Museum’s Designs of the year 2013 exhibition.

Printers & prototypes

James A’s managed to cram quite a lot in during this week. Not only has he sent printers to the UK, the Netherlands and ‘stralia but he’s been busy getting everything in order for us to be able to send more at the drop of a hat. He’s also been experimenting with printing on labels, you know, if that’s your thing.

Remember If you’re interested in getting your hands on one of these splendid little kits, head over to our printer kit page and get your Paypal on.

While not spending time with Printer, James has been busy polishing up heylist. He’s taken our original proof of concept script and turned it into an actual thing that makes it easy for anyone to build a twitter list of conference goers. We’re not quite ready to take the covers off completely yet but you’ll be the first to know as soon as we are.

Project Los Roques

This is all well and good, I hear you say, but what’s the deal with the special guests, and what on earth have you and Tom been doing all week!? Alright, alright, I’ll tell you. Tom and I have spent the week working with a couple of people (M & J) that came to us with an idea but no money. It’s a bit of an experiment really, and we don’t know what will come of it but we’ve enjoyed the week and produced something that should allow M & J to take the concept further. I know this is all a bit secretive but you’ll have to trust me when I say that we will go into more detail soon; probably early week when we’ve had some time to reflect.

And with that, I bid you all adieu and wish you all the very best of weekends.
