Serious Webcam Upgrade
While I'm not a professional streamer, as a remote worker I spend a lot of time in video conferences. So I upgraded my "webcam" to a Canon Rebel SL3 (aka EOS 250D).
Just released the 2nd update to our WebXR Viewer app this week; getting ready for a middle school class I'm going to teach on "Telling Stories using AR", starting this Friday! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/webxr-viewer/id1295998056?mt=8
I have an iPhone XS, yet just I bought a new Camera: https://blairmacintyre.me/2019/05/11/i-have-an-iphonexs-yet-i-bought-a-new-camera/
We’re getting our Discord server set up with Hubs rooms for the 17 CHI livestreams, starting tomorrow!
I’ll be here watching the opening keynote, 4am EST. If you’re not at CHI, and want to hang out with others watching the streams, come join us.
Call for Mozilla Research Grants for 2019H1 are open! Detailed topics we’re interested in, and instructions for submitting, available at https://mozilla-research.forms.fm/mozilla-research-grants-2019h1/forms/6510
(2/2) To support our social VR CHI video co-watching, I created a discord server, where we’ll find each other and organize (note: hubs can be accessed on desktop and mobile, you don’t need to use VR). If you’re interested, join https://discord.gg/pKeU5K9
