Yes. You heard that right. I've joined the team at Oculus.

My official title is community manager, though I will be doing some development as well. Probably be doing a lot of what I normally do on my free time: manning the forums, helping people out and working on little demos. So, yeah. A dream job.

I've been busy moving and I don't have internet setup at my new place, so I may be a ghost for a bit. Don't worry, its only a temporary setback. I certainly won't be leaving MTBS.

Also. I have seen the latest demo of the Rift and it lives up to the hype.

Long live VR!!!!!!!

I have never in my life seen an "I got a new job" post which made me more jealous.

Congrats!

Big congratulations. It looks like you are getting payed to work on your passion, woot. I hope this means we can see more tools like perception, video demos of how to's and direction and organization of community efforts.

If Oculus's intent is to harness the power of the modding/developer community they are simply brilliant. From Kickstarter and getting kits into devs hands for feedback to community updates and now this. This is not elementary thinking my dear Watson.

Congratulations Cyber! So glad to be working with you.

He and I had a pretty intense week. A crazy amount has to be accomplished in a very short amount of time, but it's an absolutely stellar team.

Well done! You've certainly earned it. Though that doesn't stop us feeling jealous. :-) I'm sure the Rift will be even better with you on the team. Well, it already is better with your driver. I hope you get to try your driver out on an actual Rift dev kit. Thanks for all your hard work.

Don't forget to leak some information. You could use your admin privileges on this board to edit Dycus' posts and add the secret Oculus information that you want to leak, then point your finger at Dycus and say "He did it!"

I'm just kidding. Don't actually do that.

No fine print, so it must be true! That's great news! Don't forget to use your new administrator powers to edit cybereality's posts and add all the secret details we know you're dying to leak, and then you can point the finger at cybereality and they won't know it's you.

Of course now that I've said that, you both have plausible deniability and can just add leaked details to your own posts to your hearts' content, while claiming the other did it.

Hi,


Will Oculus Inc. be hiring a Director of Photography - for "Oculus: The Film".

Surely, a documentary ought to be good publicity and a record of the beginning of something big.



Thanks.

Well done mate - very much deserved!

If you can get paid for doing something you like, you'll never have to 'work' a day in your life :)
