F**k Cyberpunk: Video
In case you missed last Thursday - check out this video of 'F**k Cyberpunk: How female-led design & thinking can redefine the Metaverse':
A couple of my key takeaways:
⭐️ The human experience and design of the metaverse desperately needs our attention and imagination.
⭐️ While intellectually many understand the metaverse is the future, emotionally there is still a significant disconnect. Representation is key.
⭐️ We have an amazing opportunity to create something that could: right generations of wrongs; be used as a tool of empowerment rather than subjugation; bridge the divides Web 2.0 has created; and produce something that - not only do we Want to participate in - but also has the potential to enhance minds, bodies, spirits, promote healing and equality, doesn’t harm our natural environment, and is actually something that gives people hope.
New Worlds. New Priorities. New Conversations.
