there i am and others …

Big thanks to lisa peyton who co-moderated the panel on “embodiment in social vr” which was totally packed.

what else happened? lots: this podcast is the longest in drax files history. many voices on ar specifically but of course going much broader since the impact on society is what interests us here. disclaimer? no magic leap tested coz draxman loves conversations too much!
