Tuesday Trends

Sukkot, best links on the Metaverse, and viewing earth from space

September 28, 2021

Happy Tuesday,

Sukkot is ending and though I didn't get a chance to build a sukkah with my kids — just too much going on right now — we did make it over to a friends house for a pool party over the weekend. They had a sukkah and we said a few prayers at the end. It was nice.

I don't mean for this to be a recurring theme, but try to find time to spend with friends and family. If not in real life than in video games!

I played Walkabout Mini Golf VR with the crew I'm building the VR educational video game with, and it was so much fun to play together.

On the Metaverse

I'm actually in two cohort-based-courses right now, one is a writing online course and the other is a VR development boot camp.

For the latest writing assignment I combined them and did a curation piece on the Metaverse

this one's important enough to snag a top nav spot on my site

If you've been intrigued, but don't fully grasp the Metaverse yet, this one's for you.

In a quick post you can find

  • the basics
  • links to top non-fiction essays covering the Metaverse
  • links to top fiction books informing the Metaverse
  • list of companies to look into

I intend to continuously work on this page to turn it into the internet's best meta resource page on the Metaverse.

🚀 Inspiration4 crew gets a view

Someday I'd like to look back at earth from space. SpaceX takes normal people a little closer to that with their latest mission. In this recently released video the crew opens the cupola for the first time to get a crazy view of earth from space.

Have you tried VR?

Playing Walkabout Mini Golf VR with friends was awesome. Have you tried VR at all?

If so, what's your favorite VR experience?

If you haven't tried VR, why?
