I heard an interview with Philip Rosedale on the “Voices of VR” podcast, came for a look. So far, I’m quite optimistic. Really appreciate the open source and community centered approach.
I’ve been around the internet for a while. Since a 56k modem was incredibly fast, and telnet was the only way to travel. The hot new tools were ftp, nntp and gopher. Community was BBS. Then came http and text-based browsers, followed by the revelation and revolution of Mosaic.
And the hits keep happening. Exciting times. But not all the innovation has been to my liking.
At one time - before DNS, back when you found new websites by updating your hosts file - sites would be dropped for behavior so crude as commercial use. At one time, all email servers were open relays. Can you imagine?
Lots of changes. But I was drawn to this technology, to ICT, by the potential for new forms of storytelling, and that hasn’t happened yet. Maybe here. Maybe now.
Now, if only HMDs weren’t so damn expensive! Does anyone know if HF will work with the new Windows Mixed Reality headsets? Seems they’re tied to UWP. Can’t believe I’m installing Windows again, wading back into Microsoft documentation!
Is there a developer’s forum here?
Oh, and cake or pie? This physical body is pretty high mileage, sugar is just another white powder and I have to say no thanks. Unless, of course, it’s organic, unprocessed, with low glycemic index…
