Project: Adams & Eves of Amsterdam

Hey, I had this idea while riding my bike the other day. Let’s see where we end with this. Let me quickly explain the concept and how you can help.

The concept

  • First, you post (in the comments below) questions you would like to ask to people living here in Amsterdam. Don’t be shy.
  • Then, you help me find people here in Amsterdam who would be ok to respond to them in video. And are ok to be published on this blog. Let them contact me via the contact form or Facebook.
  • After this. I meet these people, and they pick randomly 3 questions  and answer them in front of my camera.
  • Finally, the small 1-2 minute video gets posted here!

It’s as simple as this. So, where are your questions? What would you like to now about A’dam? It’s inhabitants? Free you mind!

Ah ha, I’m 100% sure never heard about this league! I stumbled upon this on Flickr while looking for some nice pictures for my blog. What is it? Stuffists (that’s how they called themselves) try to get as many objects as they can in one matchbox. Nothing useful here, no real challenge, just a bunch of people having fun. I like the idea, and I might end up entering this championship on day. I’ll let you enjoy selection of artifacts!
