show 143: vr in germany [part 4:zdf digital]

show #143
show #143

a team of second life/sansar folks were in frankfurt while the american colleagues partied at svvr 2017 and our sl friends mingled in-world at vwbpe over discussions about education in vws…were we jealous that we could not be at these other events?

no because it was super interesting to be here in germany, where things are a bit different: we learned that zdf digital lab does not burn tax money collected for german public broadcaster zdf [very diff system than pbs/npr in the us of a] to fund weird niche projects AND we also learned the guys who work there [even the younger folks] know their virtual world history as well, they understand context, potential pitfalls and opportunities.

enjoy a couple of fascinating conversations with staffers AND a super special guest who drax bumped into during the casual portion of the event, someone who has nothing to do with sl or vr but he is a frank zappa adjacent person to say the least:
