the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley]

broadcasting without permission from an attic somewhere in Berlin [about the metaverse – naturally!]

show #64: pathfinder

john “pathfinder” lester formerly linden was creating communities for people with disabilities at harvard medical school when 3d persistent virtual worlds and vr headsets were still a dream and/or simply way to expensive to ever get into the hands of the average user.

in the early days at the lab he was instrumental in explaining a concept that was [and is] quite esoteric for many stakeholders in education and the medical field.

times have changed but pathfinder is still focusing on the secret sauce of virtual worlds: the people whose dreams we are allowed to step into.

listen and be inspired:
