Good reasonably priced place in Arlington (preferably near Wilson Blvd) to get a haircut? 23F
If Trump wins, libs - what are your plans ? Migrate to Canada ?
And if Biden wins, pseudo-cons, what are your plans ? Raise more militia in the name of freedom ?
McK folks, when does HireRight send the link for background checks? I submitted my onboarding info (and consented to social media check) yesterday am just super anxious. I want to get it over with already and give my notice. I’ve read horror stories here about HireRight so I just want to get the process started ASAP (start date is in early Oct but want to take a month off). Thanks for sharing your experience in advance!
Protiviti team. I’ll be starting in a couples of weeks. Any tips? Looking forward to my first day.
Curious to know what the most popular hybrid work schedule is. Looking to maximize my work-life balance. All opinions welcome.

So many times over the past year, I have thought that maybe humanity deserves to be wiped out by a pandemic. I have found myself wishing that the death toll was higher and that we would all just die. We are destroying the earth. We are horrible to one another. We should all die off and let nature restore the earth. Maybe a new species can do better next time. (Yes, I realize I am a monster when I have these thoughts, but this is my confession.)
Why is the turnover at Humanity so quick?
Does anyone have suggestions for an app on iPhone that tracks calls, contacts and production and includes progress charts?
Which pharma companies offer in house roles for creatives (copy)? Getting tired of agency life
Why do companies do stupid assessments!? Me knowing which pattern finishes the sequence in no way shows how I can perform in the job
Standard Chartered Bank - Analytics profile
The HR asked me about my expected CTC and told me that she will get back to me on that same day but haven't received a call or email since that. It has been almost a month.
Have mailed her, but no response!
Has this happened with anyone? Neither a yes, nor a no. Or not even a counter offer. Very weird experience.
Me to the partners.
Are you logged out of mobile device from Deloitte outlook and other apps?
My iphone is updated to latest version still gives me error of update to latest
In my mind, if you are a salesman you need to get a life. How about a real job for a change, pal? Selling other people’s products is slavery. I’d sell my body for chump change before I sell anyone’s product. Selling other people’s products is like selling your soul.

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 😂
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.
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
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.
MediaMonks (arguably the worlds top digital agency) put together this great overview of the Metaverse as a primer. (Need to download from them)
AR/VR association has a free 6 hour conference on the metaverse on Dec 17 if you’re interested in the latest and greatest
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.
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
