Or maybe we should wait, given the expansion of the group has gone way faster than expected. idk, you're the expert :p
@email@example.com could we get that rolling? You're the expert on getting people together, and we need all the help we can get.
Speaking of diversity, I'd really love if @XRSIdotorg@twitter.com and @XRAccess@twitter.com could collab with @firstname.lastname@example.org, idk how to set up collabs but I think XRSI's experience with PSI (privacy, security, identity) and XRAccess' focus on accessibility are crucial.
@email@example.com if you want to learn what this is all about and how I'm working to ensure it's not just a nerd's dream, I can explain. I'm trying to make it so we don't end up in the oligopoly we have today for online services immersively as that can cause way more damage.
, connecting to Matrix or similar for text chat, avatars linked to accounts across platforms, etc. And for the record, I'm nonbinary. I'm not going to let a bunch of homogenous people be the ones deciding things, because problems arise that way. (2/3)
I feel I have to speak on this considering I was there and I created the initial idea of practical implementation that kickstarted the community. The fediverse item system was just a starting point, more useful things like standard world links, friendship across worlds (1/?)
Was curious to know more about this new Open Metaverse initiative, but my partner @firstname.lastname@example.org beat me to the punch + immediately noped out due to the immediate white-male-gamer centrism of “minting starships” & “loot.” Interoperability is a noble goal but it doesn’t start here.

tbh I think the easiest way to disable these is tape over the camera/proximity sensor and they won't see people coming and be stuck on the splash screen, electrical or other opaque tape will do
glass is smart now. thank goodness
For XR devices the new trend should be holographic stickers, @email@example.com can we do that for north star?

Hey wait this seems familiar... oh yea, it was a major plot point in 1984! Looks like Apple has become all 3 parts of Big Brother despite their ad :p
Discord updated their NSFW support articles to indicate that iOS devices will no longer be able to access NSFW servers at all: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500005389362-NSFW-Server-Designation
Doesn't seem to be rolled out to everyone yet (we have iOS users who are still able to talk to us on their phones), so heads up.
oh dear lord what the heck is this
Eh-Oh...what could the Teletubbies be possibly hiding from us? Stay tuned for something BIG this week. 🚀 #Bitcoin
By virtue of being OSHW @NorthStarXR@twitter.com is already amazing at right to repair, but if @HoloLens@twitter.com or such had Right to Repair you'd be able to better understand how your device is built and replace the most common failed components, maybe even do DIY mods to improve them.
for all my XR friends, note that RtR for XR means headsets you can fix yourself, no locked-down chips like T2, and no manufacturer deciding when you can or can't have a camera on. It also forces manufacturers to be truthful about what components are on their boards.
So, Right to Repair's been shut down all over (RtR is a proposed bill to force manufacturers to share essential information to repairing devices). If you have the money, please donate. Louis has been doing repair videos for years:
Exactly why Matrix should be the next big messaging app, except the community/room dynamic is chaotic and flat-out unorganizable compared to the IRC-style server/channel dynamic, please fix this @firstname.lastname@example.org
note that Slack has apparently explained why it wants to become a messaging app -- because its corporate buyers want more comprehensive surveillance of their employees https://www.protocol.com/slack-messaging-connect
this looks very weird but very amazing, never expected the display to be in a module less wide than the structured geometric waveguide!!! It kinda looks like an Apple Watch with a piece of glass intersected :p
