Welcome to my virtual reality

We are living in truly exciting times. In which technology is enabling us to reach deeper, aim higher and go further than any human has ever been before. We are able to create synthetic life, edit our genetic blueprint, build quantum supercomputers, enter virtual worlds of galactic proportions and infuse all of this with Artificial Intelligence.

This is rapidly and irreversibly changing the world we live in and invites each and everyone of us to ask ourselves these questions: 'what is this reality I find myself in, what is it comprised of and how do I navigate it?' And even more so: 'who am I and what does it mean to truly be Human in this High Tech world?' #knowthyself

'Today, being Human is the biggest act of heroism'

Join me on a Hero's Journey: step out of your comfort zone, boost your #consciousness, (re)activate your #innertechnology , shift your #perception and imagineer your own future_

Welcome to the age of the regreditorial.

Ask almost anyone: Our brains are a mess and so is our democracy.

In the last several years, we’ve seen increased focus on the crimes of the “attention economy,” the capitalist system in which you make money for enormous tech companies by giving them your personal life and your eyes and your mind, which they can sell ads against and target ads with. The deleterious effects of, say, the wildfire sharing of misinformation in the Facebook News Feed, on things of importance at the level of, say, the sanity of the American electorate, have been up for debate only insofar as we can bicker about how to correct them or whether that’s even possible.

And as such, we’ve seen wave after wave of tech’s top designers, developers, managers, and investors coming forward to express regret for what they made. “These aren’t apologies as much as they’re confessions,” education writer Audrey Watters wrote when she described one wave of the trend in early 2018. “These aren’t confessions as much as they’re declarations — that despite being wrong, we should trust them now that they say they’re right.”

Video game creator Brie Code wants to help you learn to love your phone again, using #SelfCare.

Brie Code did what most of us only dream of: She quit her job to travel the world. Only she didn’t leave Montreal to get away from it all. She circled the globe to speak at Sweden’s Inkonst Festival and SXSW, judge game jams in Tunisia and teach interactive media in Berlin, bringing a tender but vital message of care to the games industry.

Now she is setting up a studio in Montreal, TRU LUV, devoted to creating games, apps and experiences for people often overlooked by the industry. Her first work, #SelfCare, is available now in the App Store. It’s a relaxing tool to help fight smartphone anxiety, a gentle world of crystals, tarot and a character who never has to get out of bed. Here, Code talks about what inspired her to start her own studio, how others can make the leap and how queer gamers can find community.

How The Future Works: Why your ultimate job is to be HUMAN

Tags: Humanity, HeartHack

THE FUTURE. Are you excited, or are you worried? The next 20 years will bring more change than the previous 300 years. Technology is rebooting the very idea of work, how we work, when we work, where we work, and sooner or later why we work.

Computers are no longer stupid. They're watching, they're listening, they're speaking, they're learning... and they may even be thinking! Science fiction is becoming science fact, and the End of Routine is only one of the outcomes.

How much of your work is routine? Rest assured, anything that can be automated, digitized or virtualized... will be. This is as certain as music is in the cloud, cars are driving themselves, and money is going digital.
