Demo: Social VR and its potential

I’ve always loved the potential of Mozilla Hubs and certainly enjoyed exploring social VR spaces as an alternative to meeting people, not least during the pandemic. Now, I finally got the opportunity to collaborate on a project.

We’ve transformed and art project, the “Museum of the Fossilized Internet” into a 3D model that can be visited directly through the browser. I had so much filming this demo tour in VR with Dan Fernie-Harper, Liv Erickson, Elgin-Skye McLaren and Michelle Thorne:


And if you too are excited about the potential of social VR spaces, for example as an alternative to in-person conferences, you should totally read up on the Mozilla Hubs Cloud offering that the team recently launched: https://blog.mozvr.com/announcing-hubs-cloud/.

Blog: Virtual Tours of the Museum of the Fossilized Internet

In March 2020, Michelle Thorne and I announced office tours of the Museum of the Fossilized Internet as part of our new Sustainability programme. Then the pandemic hit, and we teamed up with the Mozilla Mixed Reality team to make it more accessible while also demonstrating the capabilities of social VR with Hubs.

We now welcome visitors to explore the museum at home through their browsers.

Blog: Mozilla’s journey to environmental sustainability

You can read the full post including process, strategic goals, and the four principles we’ve set for engaging on this issue on the Mozilla Blog: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/05/28/mozillas-journey-to-environmental-sustainability/

All I can say: It feels really good to finally be able to share a first insight into my new role, the challenges and opportunities that come with it. It won’t be an easy ride but I look forward to embarking on it!

(Virtuelles) Panel: Bits & Bäume

Am 23. April durfte ich gemeinsam mit der Parlamentarischen Staatssekretärin im BMU Rita Schwarzelühr-Stutter und Prof. Dr. Stefan Naumann vom Umweltcampus Birkenfeld zum Thema Nachhaltigkeit mit Blick auf Hard- und Software diskutieren. Es war definitiv ein interessantes Format, mit vielen guten Frage und Ideen, die ich nicht nur in meiner neuen Rolle als Mozillas Nachhaltigkeitsbeauftragte besonders zu schätzen weiß.
