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.

Podcast Interview: TonspurN

Auf der Bits&Bäume Konferenz in Berlin im November 2018 hatte ich die Gelegenheit mit Roman Mesicek vom TonspurN Podcast über “Die erneuerbaren Energien der Digitalbewegung” zu sprechen. Das war ein wirklich unterhaltsames und angenehmes Interview, in dem wir über die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede von Umwelt- und Digitalbewegung, die Komplexität des digitalen Ökosystems, die Herausforderungen und Ideen, mit denen sich Mozilla beschäftigt und vieles mehr gesprochen haben.

Meine persönliche Hörempfehlung ist nicht nur Folge 63, der Podcast hat noch viele weitere spannende Gesprächspartner rund um die Themen Nachhaltigkeit und Digitalisierung. Hört rein!

Workshop: Transmediale, Berlin

Thinking/Acting in Alliance: First Steps Towards a Digital Climate Agreement“, that was the title of an interesting unconference-style workshop at Transmediale, in which I was invited by iMAL to participate as a facilitator and moderator for the “freedom of speech” part of this debate.

It was an intense, but fun ride with plenty of ideas that will be further elaborated in workshops across different cities over the next few month.

And to avoid confusion: This wasn’t about using digital technologies as a tool to fight global warming, but about creating an alliance working to protect the digital environment with the same urgency as climate change.
