Liking things is not enough, go make something
Hi. I'm one of the co-founders of this odd place called Hyper Island. Back in the long distant past I was a techy programmer who became an educator and then an academic. I met some Swedes and we bought a prison and flew interesting people in to meet an amazing group of students who were making things.
I've continued to make things and so have a lot of the people we have taught: software, apps, designs, teams, courses and companies.
Now I have a chance to do it all again here in Singapore and I'm very excited about that. Suddenly we are making on a bigger scale and that's challenging but the impact we could have could be way bigger. I hope so.
Sometimes people forget where we come from and imagine that Hyper Island sprang from nothing: it didn't. It comes from a long constructivist tradition: learning through making, exploring, experimentation and teamwork.
Come and visit us in Singapore!
