show #145.jpg

jim reichert [aka illiastra] is our guest. he speaks not in his function as a microsoft employee or hololens pioneer but as the man who penned a “metaverse manifesto” of sorts.

while the neo vr crowd [jim’s term!] mingles at vrla, drax stayed put, requested permission to rename the manifesto for the season and discusses the implications of the points raised:

and just a bit to read coz we are in easter mood. sorry…

    Reblogged this on Whooshing around the metaverse and commented:
    I’ve rarely listened to a Drax pod cast all the way though in a long time. Generally they have been a rebroadcast of VR hype or some other type of hype. But this interview was thought provoking.

      thx Willow and glad you liked it. Of course I MUST disagree on your point about rebroadcasting VR hype thingies [covering critically what is happening in our field and rebroadcasting are two different things I believe] = if you listen to show 133-139 in a row: you will find almost NO VR in there except a critical look from a SL perspective with guests who are big part of the SL community.

    Reblogged the on wooshingthemetaverse.

  4. I dunno about other artists but if a platform opens up new avenues for creativity, that tends to draw me in regardless of any marketplace. Maybe i’m just a crap business person but the SL market has always been the bonus not the primary reason to create in SL. Things like sketchfab allow me to show more people what i do because it’s easier to send you a link to sketchfab than get you to log into SL and go somewhere to see it.

    In The history of SL, there was no marketplace in the beginning remember? there was other tried ways to tax people before the settled on land. Marketplace was created by the users and there was more than one external marketplace. They were bought and merged by the lab into the monopoly they have today, and in the history of SL the Linden Cut of all marketplace sales is a pretty recent idea.

    As a long time user of SL the marketplace is not as important as the virtual currency from which we donate to each other. I’m always hearing about ‘marketplaces’ in these new VR experiments, never about the ability to support and donate which to me is a huge part of what Second life has become.
