Dr. Derek Ham and I lead a Virtual Reality Prototyping Workshop at Moogfest this spring. Using VR to prototype for the real world?? Think again. Let’s use the real world to prototype for VR. Using cardboard structures and glow-in-the-dark materials, participants built their own VR dream environments. Special thanks to Smashing Boxes for letting us use their space.

Digital Design Theory
How can designers adapt and thrive in the evolving terrain of artificial intelligence? How might we map out new brands, platforms and experiences between human and machine? What dangers must we address? What destructive ideologies must we reveal? What possibilities for a better future might we explore and prototype? Big Data. Big Design: Why Designers Should Care About A.I. takes on these questions.

Just added this as a reading in my grad seminar :) Thank goodness for @JanelleCShane She keeps things in perspective.
The thing about large language models like GPT-3 and Lambda describing the experience of being self-aware is they can also describe the experience of being a squirrel.
PSA: I uploaded my *Steep Cost of Capture* piece to SSRN since ACM paywalled it.
