seems like today might be a time to say something about politics rather than about sport
Just brought out the new @Interface_Journ - the weird thing abt doing the layout and publishing is I often only get to read the actual articles afterwards...

But really enjoying some of what's in this issue!
Here's the thing abt why we do this.

Shouting at Twitter abt how bad things are is satisfying, but not v effective unless your followers really don't know - in which case, good use of yr platform!

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 +
... 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

Something huge about to get revealed tomorrow! @varjodotcom #vr #xr
Two years in the making. We started the work before even VR-1 was launched. This huge advancement in state of the art does not happen over night.
Just an hour left!

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

Dear #FridaysForFuture: u have rocked the world, & you continue to rock. But ur mobilisations (like those of the 'old' #climate-movement) have not led to structural changes. The other side digs in deeper, wins battles like #CAPReform.

Question: how will we step up the fight?
Let's turn this into a #thread on #climatejustice-strategy for the European movement(s).

1st thing to acknowledge is: there *is* no European #climate/CJ-movement. There are movements of hugely varying strength w/in different countries, & w/ the exception of the @gastivists
fighting the EU-Commission's project of switching Europe to #fossilgas - that's the commission w/ the "#greendeal", which e.g. #Greens continue to defend (…) - there's no movement player (yet) who's attempted significant EU-wide mobilisations since 2015.

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

Right now the Tory Gov is pushing through 2 changes in UK law

1 put them above Judiciary review and thus immune from the courts and the laws of the UK

2 making it easy to charged with treason by just speaking ill of the Gov, right now you'd have to try do a Guy Fawkes
2 of 4

Giving them selves immunity from the courts and the law

WEF's Klaus Schwab: "In all likelihood, unless the #pandemic evolves in an unforeseen way, the consequences of COVID-19 in terms of health & mortality will be mild..."

New week-end thread w/ @spencerlatu

#Covid19 as catalyst for #WEF #greatreset

"There has been a clear spike in #online shopping, and #retail #analysts are wondering whether this is a #decisive #move into the #virtual world, and the further #dominance of big #corporations."

Please tell the analysts that the answer is yes.
"Keeping us distracted as we wait at home for our parcels is the streaming #entertainment industry – a market sector which is dominated by big corporations including #Netflix, #Amazon Prime (again), #Disney and and others."

Ein #Thread über Untergangsglaube in der Klimabewegung, speziell über die Schrift Deep Adaptation, die besonders in #XR-Kreisen weit verbreitet ist.
Vielen Dank an @TEGNicholas. Mit seiner Einwilligung habe ich sein engl. Original ins Deutsche übersetzt:
Wir befinden uns in einer Klimakrise, dürfen aber nicht in Untergangsstimmung verfallen.

@GalenHall4, @ColleenBSchmid1 und ich erklären, warum ökologischer Untergangsglaube nie die richtige Philosophie ist.…
Insbesondere betrachten wir das verhängnisvollste Beispiel für den Untergangsglauben einer Bewegung, der @GalenHall4 und ich angehören: die schädigende Wirkung von Jem Bendells @Deepadaptation Agenda auf @ExtinctionR .

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

A thread about Establishment wealth, reparations, & why the Tories will *always* defend the statues of slavers & Empire racists… 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #reparations #ColonialViolence #resist #slavery #BlackLivesMatter
This chap is Richard Drax, Tory MP for South Dorset since 2010. His full name is Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, and he comes from a long line of Tory MPs and other assorted Establishment figures over the centuries. 😋✊🌹🇪🇺 #Drax #ScroogeMcDuck
He owns c14,000 acres of Dorset, making him the largest private landowner in the county. Pic shows his country seat, Charborough House. 🧐 #NiceGaff #Dorset #CountryLife
