Mob Fest day 3
Where are mobile games at at the moment, and where are they heading? 13 game developers, journalists, artists and programmers presented their work, and their plans for the future. From platform games to interactive non-smartphone applications in the urban environment, and from RFID and GPS to HTML5.
Ignite is run by locals, for locals. Founded in Seattle, the events are held around the world. Ignite is fast-paced and merciless, but most of all they're fun, thought-provoking nights, full of fresh ideas and clever insights. Speakers get five minutes to present their idea. They make use of twenty slides that auto-advance every fifteen seconds. A ruthless moderator will guarantee those five minutes aren't exceeded. Ignite serves as a platform for locals to connect offline and have a drink together.

Schommelen in een rijksmonument
In een grote fabriekshal hangen zes schommels aan een achttien meter hoge dakconstructie. Mediamatic stelt de monumentale Van Gendthallen die al jaren leegstaan weer open voor het publiek en opent de Mediamatic Schommelclub. Vier de opening met ons. Zweef mee, en geniet van de muziekperformance van Los Poettes en winterse snacks. Reserveer op deze pagina om ons te laten weten dat je komt.
Op het Oostenburgereiland staan vijf geschakelde industriehallen, een icoon van de Amsterdamse industriële geschiedenis. Medio jaren negentig verloren de hallen hun oorspronkelijke functie. Sindsdien is het onduidelijk hoe invulling te geven aan deze rijksmonumenten. Mediamatic onderzoekt op dit moment of een verhuizing naar de Van Gendthallen mogelijk is en organiseert in dat kader incidentele activiteiten in het prachtige gebouw.
Een speciale muziekperformance van Los Poettes mét echo onder het genot van lekkere winterse snacks....
The Last Supper with Mario Alfons
Instead of an economically responsible party, we gave an excessive Over Datum Eetclub for our final hurrah. The food was expired and carefully prepared into a delicious dinner by chef Mario Alfons. The tables were richly covered with candles and beautiful tableware. The live music of Bird on the Wire filled the space and our guests definitely dressed up for this festive occasion. It almost didn't look like an action against food waste anymore, but that was farthest from the truth.
Mario Alfons works as a sous chef at restaurant Pont 13. For one night only he graciously exchanged his top notch kitchen for our Mediamatic kitchen filled with expired products. Mario began preparing dinner hours before the guests arrived, willing to make the best Over Datum Christmas dinner ever. The guests gave a helping hand when they arrived in order to bring it all together and the results were absolutely delicious.
Improvise! with Hiske Versprille
Insecurity and fear effect us in these current days of economic crisis, the demise of the euro, and the prophecies about the end of the world. But insecurity provides an opportunity for creativity, says our chef Hiske Versprille. We can't always know in advance what will happen, so we'll have to improvise. The same goes for the kitchen of the Over Datum Eetclub, where we don't know what will be served until the evening itself!
Hiske loves food and used to cook in restaurants all over London and Amsterdam. Nowadays she is a journalist, but never gave up her passion for food and cooking, writing about it on her blog. Escaping the written word for one more night, she dived back into the kitchen at our Over Datum Eetclub. If you love her food as much as we know you will, then you can get a second helping on the 17th of December when she'll be cooking a big benefit dinner for on-line magazine Hard Hoofd.
