So I’m on a case team where I’m the “anchor” aka most experienced member of the working team. It’s me, a fresh out of undergrad woman, and our day to day project leader. Technically he is supposed to be our manager but I’m ending up spending so much of my day to day time in addition to my own work checking the other woman’s work, answering her questions, screen-sharing stuff that I’m doing so she can learn, and sometimes I find it’s at the expense of me finishing my work on time. Also, when…

If we are in the red zone and failed both the sme interviews is what it meant performance exit or we will still be considered for an FTE? I have heard that people with both the sme failures are still pulled in the projects and are full time! Should we be in a hope or look out for other jobs?
Bi and poly teacher, and I am grateful that my admins are accepting of both. Wondering if you are "out" at work, and/or how your school supports the community for both staff and students.
Is the Air King overlooked? Came across this photo. Looks like a mix of an explorer and an op.
Received a job offer from both Amazon and Microsoft in US as account manager for their advertising business. Very similar compensation. Amazon ads seem more interesting and exciting and growing aggressively, whereas for Microsoft will be working mainly with Bing ads. However, Microsoft seems to have better work life balance and culture. Any insights on anyone working in these roles?

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
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.

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.

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

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…
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.
