Sukey De Verdieping Talk, Amsterdam 2011: Post 1

By in Non-Techie

Amsterdam is a beautiful city on several levels. Its beautifully designed, the bicycle system is integrated into the cities structure in a way I dont think is even possible in London rather that being pushed to the kerb and generally ignored (mostly) like they are in London, they have dedicated lanes on almost every road and seem to be seen in a similar light to those driving cars.

By far the most impressive at this point has been the Central Library, and the attitude towards libraries in Amsterdam. If you live in the UK Im sure youre aware of the terrible things being done to the funding of libraries. I am currently blogging from this most amazing of spaces:

The Openbare Centrale Bibliotheek Amsterdam is the largest public library in Europe, and possibly also the best. It has 10 floors we have been working on stuff for Sukey for most of the day from floor 5 it is fully networked, they have public iMacs for visitors, ergonomically designed workspaces from people on their own or in groups, and a full blown, affordable restaurant on the top floor where you can choose from a variety of incredibly tasty and healthy foodstuffs.

Essentially its about the most productive environment in which I have ever been.

Student fees for university courses used to be non-existent, but now cost €1,713 from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The people are welcoming, friendly and love Londoners. Were having a fantastic time here!

New Website

By in Non-Techie

Hi everyone,

Its been a busy few days for us at team Sukey, weve been working very hard on several new things one of which is our new website layout; we thought wed do a little spring cleaning. Ok, so its not spring yet. But we couldnt resist! Truth is we couldnt resist the lure of another all-nighter for all the tasty click-throughs from the article about us in the Guardian. So heres the result *drumroll* tadaa!

Top of the list right now for us is tidying up the source code and getting it open to the public on GitHub as soon as possible. Were tightening bolts and battening down the hatches, so keep an eye out!

Were also working on some little surprises for you and some new video coming soon. Watch out for our full introduction to Sukey and its features, as well as details of how it works.

Stay safe everyone, expect more soon. Were aiming to get Sukey 2.0: Electric Boogaloo ready for a special event ahead of the March 26th demo. It promises to be lots of fun and we hope to see you there!
