Future of virtuality in-the-making: Reflections from Stanford University (Re-post)

Last week, I have written about my experiences and reflections at Stanford University (and Silicon Valley) as a guest-author on Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation’s Blog.

Right after this was posted, one of our Silicon Valley colleagues, a good friend, and talented Web3D/AR specialist, Damon Hernandez reposted my review in his inspirational technology blog ‘MetaverseOne‘ with new videos from some of our own collaborative works.

My visiting scholarship at Stanford University’s H-STAR Institute was supported by DASTI and Innovation Center Denmark. It was not only an amazing opportunity to learn more about the cultures and practices of social innovation around the Bay Area, but also a a valuable chance to meet with virtual world experts and veterans and (hopefully) ignite conversations for future international collaborations.

During my stay, I had the chance to meet with Virtual Worlds, Web3D, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality experts as well as platform and content developers, professional users and communities (such as digital fabrication specialists, builders, performance artists and educators). The new blogpost  describes my vision of Stanford University and Silicon Valley as leading fields of collaborative social innovation, discusses my observations on past, present and future of CVEs, outlines my reflections on the importance of research scholarships, ICDK’s presence in Silicon Valley and collaborations with Danish entrepreneurs in the area, and ends with some personal ideas on how Denmark can participate in this emerging/present socio-technical paradigm more competently.
