Just getting back into the swing of things after SVVR! It was a tremendous show; just about all the industry thought leaders had some kind of presence, and SVVR’s teamwork paid off in a big way. Everyone was glad they went. Congratulations again to the whole SVVR team for a great two days!
It makes no sense that with all the rich discussions, innovations, and general futurist thinking that was showcased at this memorable conference, that the biggest story circulating the web was in answer to a question. That Oculus was open to porn, and how this somehow demonstrates they have an open platform.
It’s very unfortunate because porn is not why I got excited about virtual and augmented reality. It’s not what wowed everyone when they put on their first DK1, and I doubt that it is what is occupying the hearts and minds of VR enthusiasts, developers, and innovators everywhere who invested their hard earned time and money to share with the community at SVVR, and are making dramatic commitments to their future careers.
Porn has had absolutely nothing to do with any of the excitement or innovations that has gotten us to this point, and while it’s a viable form of content like any other, it’s misleading that this is considered the big story out of an otherwise far more remarkable show made possible by crowds and crowds of remarkable people.
MTBS will have more to share from SVVR soon!
