Why has Milbank been quiet on the DPW re-raise?
Been delayed 3 straight weeks with United, today being the worst as in my red eye flight was cancelled and have to miss a full work day. Manager "I need you to stop flying United ASAP" 😂
I’ve been seeing some project management roles in industry that I’d like to apply for, but most of my current projects have been risk and controls based. Would it be a stretch/dishonest to tailor my resume to fit those roles? I think I’d be a good fit and have the core skills for the work. I’d like to become a technical project manager eventually.
What kind of accommodations can I ask for especially since I work from home? I am having an extremely hard time with the pressure and time constraints on getting the work done. I am a very fast pace worker but it’s like I can’t work fast enough here at this new job. And I don’t know what to ask for.
Certifications are non-sense, lots of platform app builder and admin ‘passers’ but don’t know how to even update a field or a page layout.
I have offer with citi. But I have poor credit history/cibil score. Will citi check credit history too on background check and reject candidate?

Please share your inputs about citi's background check and which one to choose.

Does anyone have any experience working with FeverUp? I have a interview with them this week and I would love to hear about life within the company.
Agency recommendations in Atlanta? My partner may have a job opportunity, so I’m scouting ahead of time in case we move.
So my partner will be getting laid off 4/15. 🥺
Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
My husband and I recently learned that IVF is our only option for TTC, and we'll need a sperm donor. We've been quite disheartened by the lack of diversity represented in the sperm banks. When you factor in the genetic and CMV considerations and then layer that with a specific race/ethnicity, we are finding very few sperm donors to consider. Are other women/couples of color experiencing the same? Does anyone have recommendations for a sperm bank that might have a more diverse pool of donors?

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
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.
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.
AR/VR association has a free 6 hour conference on the metaverse on Dec 17 if you’re interested in the latest and greatest
Don’t actually say where their new virtual mansion will live, but interesting review of Playboys business pivot
Here is a great backgrounder on Apple’s ride into the Metaverse and the Canadians behind the tech.
Apple releasing a hybrid AR/VR headset will totally change the market dynamic, bringing it mainstream from the still-a-bit-nerdy niche it still occupies. Also, the Apple app developers will start reimagining their hits for the platform. Apparently the v1 will cost something like $3k but folks pay that for a macbook so…
It’s wild that the in-game cryptocurrencies (which can be traded out for cash) are being tracked like stocks now.
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.
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
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
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.
MediaMonks (arguably the worlds top digital agency) put together this great overview of the Metaverse as a primer. (Need to download from them)
Hey director of digital strategy, do you have any good resources for beginners to learn more about the meta verse?
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
