Registered for HiveFest⁶

Hivefest 6 has been announced and will take place on November 12 and 13th in AltSpace VR. If you didn't attend last years event, you do not need a VR device to participate. 2D mode works great and in some cases is a better experience (if you are presenting for example).

I recommend you check out @roelandp's introduction post to get the basics of Hivefest 6.

Last year I did a presentation at Hivefest about using AltSpace VR to onboard users to Hive and the basics of doing presentations. I also closed Hivefest with a stand up comedy rountine.

You can watch both my presentation and stand up routine

I highly recommend going to Hivefest, with it being in AltSpace VR there is no financial barrier to join and no need to travel halfway across the world to get there. I always encourage you to consider doing a presentation if you think you have something interesting to offer.

I will probably start hoping on AltSpace VR again prior to the event to mingle and perhaps work on a new presentation this year. Not sure what the availability of presenting is this year, hopefully @roelandp can leave a comment regarding that.

Since a lot of my focus lately has been into Blockchain gaming, if I did do a presentation I might talk about that.

I have a few projects I am working on and doing it under the branding Blockhead Games.

I have two smaller projects similar in size of Ape Mining Club but I believe a bit more interesting and one massive project that I have been spending a lot of time thinking about the logistics and how it would work. I really love this project idea but it's very stressful to work on and ultimately release something of this size on a blockchain. I can't really share anything about this project yet except will be a massive adventure, rpg, collectible card pirate themed game.

Anyway, I don't want to get too far off topic, I will definitely be going to Hivefest unless something critical comes up, and there is a good chance I will prepare a presentation if I can come up with something I think you would like listening to.

I highly recommend spending some time customizing your avatar in AltSpace VR and explore the world and get familiar with the experience. There is a small learning curve but it is relatively easy to do.

If you really want to go nuts, try building a presentation and launch a show in VR, use my presentation to give yourself some guidance.

I'm so glad to hear Hive Fest is happening. There's nothing like seeing people in person, and I hope that happens again someday when we're looking at the pandemic in the rear view mirror. But as you say, with a virtual event the financial barriers are gone. Hopefully it will be well attended!

Definitely tag me and educate me in all of this I'm really interested in coming and checking this out.

And I've been thinking about getting virtual reality as well so I would love to show up in 3D.

Yeah man congratulations everybody

I'll be there again and have donated. Despite a few technical glitches it was fun last time. Just being able to chat to people in VR was fun. I don't have the VR gear, but 2D worked.

I know international meetups are not viable for now, but I hope to see more local events starting again. Those can be fun too.

that stand up routine is weird without some laugh tracks to space out the jokes :)

I know there would always be people to ruin it, but in theory you could have the crowds mic's on to hear their laughter... Or lack thereof!
