Nach der bundesweiten Razzia gegen Tatverdächtige der #LetzteGeneration besteht Verunsicherung.
➡️Betreibt die Politik das Framing einer "Grünen RAF"?
➡️ Wird hier legitimer friedlicher Protest kriminalisiert?
➡️Ist der Staat zu weit gegangen?
1 🧵 1/20…
Die Radikalisierung der Umweltbewegung ist – nicht nur – politisch motiviertes "Framing", sondern wird innerhalb der Bewegung seit Jahren diskutiert. Insbesondere aus den Reihen von #XR wurde gefordert, den Pfad der Gewaltlosigkeit zu verlassen.
Diese Gedanken haben ihren Niederschlag in dem auch von @Luisamneubauer empfohlenen Buch des schwedischen Humanökologen Andreas Malm gefunden: „Wie man eine Pipeline in die Luft jagt“.

Der Versuch der Kriminalisierung von #LetzteGeneration #XR oder #FFF folgt (unbewusst) dem Drehbuch von Firmen in den USA, die vor Jahren in den USA von Ex-Militärangehörigen gegründet wurden. Eine dieser Firmen nennt sich #TigerSwan.

Ziel dieser Firmen ist es, im Auftrag der Fossilindustrie Klimaaktivisten zu beobachten, zu infiltrieren, zu diskreditieren und zu kriminalisieren. Es werden Organsations- und Personenprofile erstellt. #StandingRock #350org…

Darüber hinaus wird versucht, in die Politik hinein zu lobbyieren + Informationen auszutauschen. Ziel ist es, die Gesetzgebung dahingehend zu beeinflussen, dass fossile Infrastruktur als kritische Infrastruktur deklariert wird, um einen größeren Handlungshebel zu entwickeln.

Gisteren was het een surreële dag om waarnemer bij de #A12 demonstratie van @NLRebellion te zijn. Ik zag onnodige escalatie en de waterkanonnen speelden daarin de hoofdrol. Een draadje 🧵 1/14
Voor 12u werd al geprobeerd de solidariteitsdemonstratie boven de A12 te voorkomen door het zicht te belemmeren en overal was veel politie. 2/14
Ook rond de plek waar de #XR demonstratie zou beginnen was veel politie; ME, busjes en politiepaarden. Op verschillende plekken vormden groepjes demonstranten. 3/14

Burgemeester gisteren: een motie over het faciliteren van de solidariteitsdemonstratie is overbodig. Burgemeester vandaag: alles rond #A12 afschermen zodat niemand wat kan zien. 🙈

Wat een politiestaat vanochtend; overal politiebusjes, politiepaarden en ME. #A12 #xr Image

Ich war heute Teil einer Demo, die angesichts #Lützerath & der Verlängerung des Kohleausstiegs durch shady Reserve-Absprachen der #Ampel auf den zu den #Grünen wollte – und sofort gekesselt wurde.

Eine Reflexion zu #Polizeiproblem als Polizeikontakt.
Seit 2020 bin ich bei #ExtinctionRebellion, im #ForstKasten und zuletzt auch beim Klimatreffen als Polizeikontakt aufgetreten und habe das Versammlungsrecht von Klimaschützenden gegen polizeiliche Willkür verteidigt.

Diese verschärft sich zunehmend.
Zunächst: Die #Versammlungsfreiheit Art. 8 GG gilt bei normalen, spontanen & Eilversammlungen. Die Nicht-Anmeldung ist für die Versammlungsleitung in BY eine Ordnungswidrigkeit. Nach Brockdorf-Beschluss des BVerfG 1981 ist eine Nicht-Anmeldung kein Grund zur Auflösung.

@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

Unsere Politiker sind eigentlich schon ziemlich radikal mit ihrem absichtlichen Ansteuern von 3-4°... 🤔 #Klimakatastrophe Image
Und unsere Politiker sind erst recht radikal mit ihrem ihrem absichtlichen Verteidigen eines Kapitalismus, der in seiner jetzigen Form unsere Zivilisation abschaffen würde.
Wir alle sollten uns sehr schnell fragen, was absurder und menschenverachtender klingt:

Die aktuelle Politik, die irreversibel Umwelt und Klima zerstört, Milliarden leidende Menschen in Kauf nimmt, absichtlich Kriege anzettelt, Superreichtum fördert,

oder dieser Witz (via #XR): 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.
"#NewPower – The ability to harness the connected crowd to get what you want" – Jeremy Heimans, Purpose/Avaaz/Verifed

Launched Sept 2020 by Carney, the taskforce includes #BlackRock #BP #Saleforce #Shell #Unilever #GoldmanSachs #NaturalCapital Partners:

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 +
... So a #BlackDH XR project based in some of our previous @irLhumanities work like @christinwa9's Black Brooklyn/ Dare to Remember (2017) project + @awwsmith_ ’s “What's in you air" (2020) AR project, developed as a @SnapLensStudio resident.
We also have @blkvibration's #BlackDH collabs on dance + VR in Image
