I've been collecting a lot of reference material from other studios and things that inspire me for Kiri. Are.na is the best place to collect that kind of material.

Pulling this one out of my daily for now. Makes way more sense to first focusing on building the studio and refining my writing sessions. Besides that a lot of my attention is going to project base #1.

Incoming pitch made me realize that we need some sort of digital establishment as soon as possible. Even its just a website in stealth mode, we need something to show our online presence and capabilities. By the end of the week I want the domain name and simple landingpage fixed.

Made an overview of all the running subscriptions we currently have for this no-code platform. Running costs including Airtable (we now have free year through discount) would be over $200 per month.

“Motion” is the act of researching; “action” is getting your reps in. Never mistake the two.

Important to view the Futureland entries as a way to perform actions rather than motion.

Writing these progress posts on Futureland is really satisfying. We keep the idea in motion. By working on it everyday we make progress and gather valuable feedback.

Changing the order of you daily could use some design polish. I would suggest to add the reorder icons (3 small stacked stripes) on the right. Furthermore I would make the red crosses a little bit smaller.

Finally I think that it would be cool if you could split the daily up in morning, day, and evening.

What I envision for this project is an end result like Mercury OS from Jason Yuan. A conceptual research piece with a sense of craft and attention to detail. I see his work as a real masterpiece and it inspired me to learn more about Human Computer Interaction.

Thinking a lot about the structure of Kiri lately. Something that really speaks to me is a decentralized model where ownership is divided among a collective of creative professionals. A semi-formal network of trusted peers who come together using a shared infrastructure to work and develop ideas.

Got into the community of Ink and Switch. They invite people to present personal projects during workshop. This will enable me to present my work to them. I need such external accountability to keep the project in motion. Besides such accountability I am also talking to a possible collaborator that might join the projectz

A live in months. This is one of the interfaces that modern digital calendars don't use. I think it can bring tremendous value for seeing 'the bigger picture'.

I have been researching and prototyping ideas around the future of time and the calendar. I believe that the digital calendar is fundamentally broken and needs change. My project is still pretty early but excited to show some progress here over time.

I think we are going for the name Kiri. Short and sweet. Japanese for 'mist'. Indonesian for 'left'. A nice quirky tone in English. Welcome to Studio Kiri.

For now we have set on Kiri as the name. Next up is deciding domains. Kiri.com is with 144.000 'slightly' out of budget so now leaning towards .earth, .so, or .studio.

Discussed annual planning and quarterly planning. We want to have a good mixture between personal projects and client work.
