If I have nearly 5 years on the brand side, working on creative as well as brand marketing but only hold a junior standing on the agency side (creative) - am I really still just a junior creative?
How did you choose which big4 to go with?
I’m interviewing for a digital content manager position at the end of next week (Amazon, salsify, etc) in WA. It would be my first formal leadership position(I have lead teams, programs, and projects, but never had the official title). What questions should I be prepared to answer? Any tips for pushing myself above the competition?
Who wants to tell him?

When bolding some words/sentences within a cell rather than the entire cell, excel automatically changes the font size of the highlighted characters. Anyone experienced this and know a fix?
As I chauffeur my husband and dog around (husband’s car is in shop), I am so thankful I don’t have to do this every day with children.

Hello, I need career advice I am graduating with my master's in digital marketing soon. I have 6 + years of transferable work experience but have not been able to land an internship. I have a disability and self-identified as a person with disabilities on over 30 apps and always received emails with, thank you for applying, but we have moved on to other candidates that better align with the company's mission.”
How can I break into the industry? Should I hide my disability? ¿Is it my pain point?

This new Matrix demo is CRAZY. Avail on new Xbox and PS5. Gist is, shows how next gen games/VR will be photorealistic. Long vid but worth it.
Anyone get an Oculus over the holidays? Oculus app was in the top spot christmas day so looks like lots did. I have mine in a box and am too lazy to dig it out but feel like I should so I can try Facebook’s Horizon Metaverse thing. Hopefully I don’t get VR groped in there like that one lady
Ben Evans, a great future thinker in tech, put together this wide ranging future tech trends report that sets up the Metaverse in the context of Web3, crypto and DAO’s, which will likely spin the Metaverse off into unexpected directions. Think Web 1 (just posting stuff online) to web 2 (social, ecom, etc) and now is Web 3. Https://www.ben-evans.com/presentations
I think this is going to be a pr disaster and a source of anti-metaverse memes https://www.adweek.com/commerce/miller-lite-super-bowl-ad-exclusively-metaverse/ Decentraland doesn’t seem to have many active users from my occasional visits, feels like second life with crypto and similar graphics. Driving a bunch of people there with console quality expectations to stand around and talk to 4chan randos to watch a commercial is going to go south. Decentraland is not the metaverse.
Hurrah! We have 93 members! But no one posts or comments lol. Anyone getting Second Life vibes from all these 3D worlds and brand investments? A decade ago Best Buy was serving people in 3D with SL.
Adidas just teased their new NFT collaboration with Bored Ape Yacht Club on Twitter with a link to a landing page. Interesting that it doesn’t include a mention of their integration into Sandbox.Game (enter that URL into browser to visit, doesn’t render in Fishbowl for some reason) which is launching in Alpha today. Snoop, Smurfs, Walking Dead also have integrations into Sanbox.
First consumer-targeted AR glasses are available at Verizon. Sound like they’re a bit of a flop on the app ecosystem side of things but still cool tech and way, way smaller than the Hololens and Magic Leap. Will take a while to get there. Get the impression that Apple’s v1 glasses will be VR with AR features (ie full occlusion) before releasing something like these
The Winklevoss Twins are back. Raised $400M to combat their nemesis Zuck & Meta for ascention to leaders of the Metaverse https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeldelcastillo/2021/11/18/gemini-raises-400-million-to-protect-the-metaverse-from-meta-facebook/?sh=533784975f57

It’s wild that the in-game cryptocurrencies (which can be traded out for cash) are being tracked like stocks now.
Hey director of digital strategy, do you have any good resources for beginners to learn more about the meta verse?
MediaMonks (arguably the worlds top digital agency) put together this great overview of the Metaverse as a primer. (Need to download from them)
Here is a great backgrounder on Apple’s ride into the Metaverse and the Canadians behind the tech.
Hey Metafishies! I’m looking for a mentor for pivoting into AR / VR design. I’m a recent grad and Art Director in advertising but I have some translatable skills in UX that have netted me a good amount of student awards - I’m still so early into my career, but I see so much that I want to contribute to in this next advent of human interaction. If anyone has any connections or can chat about this I’d really appreciate it :)
Don’t actually say where their new virtual mansion will live, but interesting review of Playboys business pivot
If you have an Oculus Quest you can play Facebook’s first foray into the metaverse now. They’re pretty fun toys and compared to other VR headsets aren’t too expensive ($300 @ Best Buy). Get one and expense it for work research into metaverse 😂
