After a few months of online work, Diplo’s Creative Lab team met in Geneva. We locked ourselves in a room for three days (20‒22 May) to further advance the development of Digital Watch in preparation for the launch of the Alpha version at the end of the June. Diplo is developing the observatory for the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP). Given the richness of discussions and the value of the process itself, we decided to keep a brief diary.
