I’m in New York with Tuomo preparing for this weekends Playful event, part of NY design week. Tuomo is exhibiting Playkka and together we are running a kids solar sound toy making workshop this Sunday afternoon. If you are nearby come along to Gansevoort plaza in the meatpacking district. It’s free to take part and should be noisy and fun.

I’ve not been to many events this year but the two I have made it to have been excellent. One I already new about but the other was new to me.  Recently I was kindly invited to take part in a workshop for a major Finnish mobile phone company. The workshop was very interesting but also excellently timed as it coincided with Alternative Party 2008.  I only got to attend briefly but really enjoyed what I saw.  A nice mixture of old computers, demos, electronics, art and of course beer.
