Does pre-MBA T2 consulting experience help or hurt for M7 summer internship interviews at MBB? Have heard prior consulting is helpful but have also heard that MBB doesnt like “bad habits” formed at other consulting firms.
Hello Google fish! Would anyone here be a part of the Google Workspace for Education Specialist team?
I'm looking to gain insight regarding how the team operates on a day to day basis and learn about the dynamics of team, especially when working remotely.
Please let me know if you are open to a DM and sharing your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
I’m 29 making 70k with about 100,000 net worth. Rent an apartment and I have a 2010 Honda Insight that’s probably worth about 10k. How misguided would it be to sell my car and buy a 2013 tesla model S for 30k. I’ll probably go with being responsible and saving for a house instead, but I’m still curious lol
I want to live with intentionality. I’m near my 40s, still single and maybe afraid to grow old and die alone. Yet, I have this thing nagging inside my head and my heart to live life to the fullest and enjoy the independence, the solitude and occasional companionship. I want to live a nomadic life, drive a van, go to some places and show off to the world I don’t give a damn on ‘how life should be lived’… and still tell myself when I’m old that I have done those things and did it differently
I applied for a sales analyst position at Goldman Sachs and received an email saying they want me to do a pre-recorded video interview . Does anyone have experience/tips to offer?

Thoughts on snoo vs other bassinets ??
Today my boss demanded that I do a trial with him in 3 weeks on a case I know nothing about. I’m a second year lawyer and with covid have never done a trial. I’m told this is the way of a trial lawyer’s life. I feel like it’s a total lack of respect of me and what I have going on as well as a function of them being chronically understaffed. Any thoughts or advice? I’m thinking of jumping ship.
How much is the probability of getting an offer letter from any organization after HR round and sharing documents?
Anyone have any experience creating messaging architecture for a new website? I'm wondering what your process is. I can go into consumer journeys but my boss...
Did anyone else adopt the new Florida Wonders curriculum? We just adopted it this school year, and I teach 4th grade. My team and I have not found a good flow, schedule, or whatever you want to call it. We feel like it teaches too many skills in one lesson, and we are not able to truly teach anything “deep” enough for students to master. Does anyone have any insight? What do you do? Do you like the curriculum? Why or why not? Would you be willing to share what you do weekly/daily? Thanks!

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.
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
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
Hey director of digital strategy, do you have any good resources for beginners to learn more about the meta verse?
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.
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
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
Here is a great backgrounder on Apple’s ride into the Metaverse and the Canadians behind the tech.
It’s wild that the in-game cryptocurrencies (which can be traded out for cash) are being tracked like stocks now.
MediaMonks (arguably the worlds top digital agency) put together this great overview of the Metaverse as a primer. (Need to download from them)
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 :)
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…
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 😂
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.
