@SoftspaceHQ Prototype04 is here!

This prototype explores how a spatial interface can let you better work with the true shape of your ideas.

Yes, I think ideas have shapes, and that their shape matters. 👀👇🏼🧵

What is the global structure of knowledge?

How we think knowledge is structured determines which strategies for seeking and creating knowledge we consider legitimate. Image
Some think of knowledge as one long sequence—perhaps the word of a deity revealed in a holy book.

You look for knowledge in the book, and create knowledge by interpreting points in the book. Image

Indigenous leaders from Brazilian territories @ApibOficial and #XR Europe protested today infront of @EU_Commission demanding:

"Anti-deforestation law must include all regions/biomes, not just the Amazon in the 'Law on the Importation of Forest-Risk Products' (FERC)!"

Thread 🧵 ImageImage
@ApibOficial @EU_Commission The #EuropeanUnion is one of the largest buyers of soy and other forestry risk products from Brazil. This causes harm and destruction to #IndigenousPeoples and their lands.

“We need the EU government to stop these environmental crimes!” #StopEcocide ImageImage
@ApibOficial @EU_Commission Respect the International Rights of #IndigenousPeople!

Indigenous Land is a guarantee for the future of all humanity. There is no solution to the #ClimateCrisis and #Biodiversity loss without Indigenous Peoples - @ApibOficial

SoftspaceAR Prototype03 is out!

This prototype is all about making Softspace deeply interoperable with the rest of your workflow.

Let’s talk about why spatial canvases are awesome, but also painful, and how we maybe fixed this 🪡👇🏼

#vr #xr #metaquest2 #tft #buildinginpublic
Having a spatial canvas to organize your ideas on is amazing, but spatial layouts can be hard or impossible to translate to the other formats and devices in your workflow.

And if the work you do in an app gets stuck there, you’re (justifiably) not going to use it very much. Image
With Prototype03, I wanted to figure out how Softspace might overcome this problem without simply becoming a VR version of an existing 2D app. Could we keep that immersive spatial magic, while reading from and writing to a file format that’s highly portable?

Like markdown? Image

Recap thread of my @Official_GDC talk yesterday, “Up Close & Virtual: The Power of Live VR Actors” for anyone interested in #MetaHumans #VR #Theatre #LiveEvents #SocialVR #CloudXR #CloudGaming. It will also be available in the GDC vault soon. Image
I started w/ my 2008 London story about how watching the best performers in the world from the front row had a profound effect on me. It’s different from a film close-up or from sitting in the back seats. You can hear some of the story in my #GTC21 talk:…
Then I did a speed run of my work in #XR for designing real theaters before jumping right into showing Christmas Carol.

I enumerated 3 things that made this show possible:

1. Cloud computing (thanks @nvidia)

2. MetaHumans (thanks Epic)

3. Live Link Face (thanks Epic again) Image

"Metsähallitus on aloittanut hakkuut Häädetkeitaan suojelunarvoisissa luonnonmetsissä Parkanossa. Luonto-Liiton metsäryhmä on paikalla seuraamassa tilannetta yhdessä Greenpeacen ja Elokapinan kanssa. Hakkuut on toistaiseksi pysäytetty. 1/x
Häädetkeitaalla on säilynyt poikkeuksellisen laaja yhtenäinen metsä- ja suokokonaisuus, jonka suojelua ympäristöjärjestöt ovat ehdottaneet useaan otteeseen. Metsät koostuvat paikoitellen yli 100-vuotiaista karuista männiköistä ja osittain eri-ikärakenteisista kuusikoista. 2/x
Kohteen arvoa lisää palohistoria, alueella havaitut uhanalaiset lajit sekä luonnontilaiset suot. Hakattavaksi suunnitellut alueet sijaitsevat Häädetkeitaan luonnonpuiston läheisyydessä ja rajautuvat suojeltuihin kohteisiin. 3/x

Given the #metaverse announcements today, I've published a timely article to share with you, from the new Stanford Journal of Online #Trust & #Safety: The Problems with #immersive #advertising : In #AR/#VR, Nobody Knows You Are an Ad.….
You've already experienced #AugmentedReality ads if you watch sports. The billboards behind the players in the stadium are different from the billboards that your family, watching from home in another state, will see. (2)
XR hardware pioneer @avibarzeev and I discuss what immersive advertising looks like, and trace its evolution through techniques used in film, sports, and gaming. My favorite is @CocaCola Cola's "Pepsi Invaders" -- like space invaders, but the enemy robots spelled out @pepsi. (3)

1/10 This is a knowledge dump about mobile #AR #opensource #XR etc. To get this look at…
1 The state of #AR for public works often focusses on images
2 More interesting experiences (walking) focus on spatial audio
3 Building in web has limits, but pays off
4 The client will want exact tracking of 3d spatial #AR objects
5 GPS variability across devices won't allow exact tracking
6 Open source strategies introduce adaptability & immediate testing on site
7 App stores are dead ends for dead apps (18 month cycle) @closeandremote
8 The sweet spot for 'locative' media is integration of the senses, in Eleanor as you walk along the River Wensum the boats & oars are panned left @SandyNuttgens
9 Sound design for software is a potential growth area, it needs people who get software & sound

So finally: @Spatiate_app. This will be a big 🧵. One hallmark moment was @AndyLanning painting Groot when we were in London, then uploading it direct to @Sketchfab as seen in this sped-up scene filmed on an iPhone using #ARKit
Showing other people the power of multi-user cross-platform technology was always rewarding, and one moment was called back to in today’s @joinClubhouse talk w/@AndreElijah by @FutureMeme4 (who created OpenVerse). People just “got it.” Every time.
What is Spatiate? @continuumtoon explains it pretty well, this is from @mitrealityhack in 2019

I finally want to talk more about #LeapSquad, with one of the greatest experiences we had making a multiplayer sandbox party (prior to joining @magicleap) - of course featuring the originals @ali_heston @andres @tramirez89 @JJCastilloVR
One of the biggest benefits of developing #XR multiplayer is being able to use the computer as a first-class client to track all the @unity3d logic w/o needing emulators or remote rendering. Here we're doing early testing & solving things (can you tell how much fun we're having)
We also used a 6th desktop client to monitor while filming scenes for the main video linked above. See if you can match some of these to the final product. Clearly directed by @JJCastilloVR, and special thanks to @jasteinerman for lending Ali his headset for this

This is a learning thread.

A lesson in #language, "purpose" & #NewPower.

From inception, #NetZero was devised as the language to garner uptake/demand from citizenry while simultaneously building a framework to propel #CarbonMarkets, #CCS technology, #NETs, & #nuclear.
Note the panel. Nicole Schwab as moderator (daughter of Klaus Schwab), #naturebasedsolutions, 1TDOTorg, #Gates, #Carney (#ImpactInvesting), Nazareth (regulation), & Bill Winters, chair, Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary #CarbonMarkets.

Enjoying @UMDMAVRIC. Especially grateful to @marcruppel for his rundown of the kinds of work possible at the intersection of design, storytelling & spatial humanities. Now I’m motivated to note some of the #XR work @umd_AADHum is exploring alongside @UMD_MITH's work w/ Lakeland +

Democracy is promoted as the gold standard of governmental systems, compared favourably to oppressive regimes the world over. But is democracy truly democratic, or is it an illusion designed to suppress opposition & perpetuate privilege? 1/34
So, what is democracy, where did it come from & why is it held up as gold? The ancient Greeks coined the term, but their version would not be recognised as democratic by any but our ruling elites (which is more depressing than ironic). But Abraham Lincoln put it well… 2/34
… speaking in the midst of bloody conflict. His famous Gettysburg Address conjured visions of ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people,’ & demanded that democratic ideals win the day, so that ‘these dead shall not have died in vain.’ 3/34

Ahead, as part of the #GreatReset, is the finacialization of nature. "#Ecosystem services" & #biodiversity will be bought, sold & traded on #WallStreet. This will be the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history.
It must be stopped. @nodealfornature
Assigning monetary value to nature ("#NaturalCapital") will replace #GDP. The very corporations & institutions that have destroyed the natural world, will then own what remains - what they have not yet destroyed.

Nature's contribution (theft) to the global economy is est. at 125 trillion $ annually, while world's annual #GDP is est. at 85.9 trillion dollars (2018). "Natural Capital" accounting will replace #GDP.

The financialization of #SocialCapital will follow.

This @XRebellionUK tension structure blockading the billionaire press site is genius and is, I think, the contemporary face of High Tech architecture. I'd argued #XR are the last remaining authentic High Tech architects. Hear me out. 1/7
High Tech had its roots in the eco-techno pioneering of practitioners like Frei Otto, Cedric Price and Buckminster Fuller — saving Spaceship Earth by doing more with less while enjoying a rich cultural life was the name of the game. Architecture should be fun and light. 2/7
This "High Tech" spindly architecture infused with gregarious eco optimism is taken up in earnest by Foster, Piano, Rogers, Grimshaw and others whose work is charismatic, pre-fabricated, and doesn't weigh much. 3/7
