I loved opening up the #MoveTheDialSummit with my dear friend Raia "Coach" Carey! Let's move this dial today!!

.@RussellLadson spoke with @CultureBanx @korihale about the immersive web, trends in AR/VR, and what the future of spatial computing will look like in 10+years. We're so excited to be on the frontier!

Happy to have been a sponsor for today’s @AllRaise summit in Oakland! @imchristiepitts, @iBrittDavis & I attended while @bryanlanders & @sononte represented at other events like @joinmovethedial in other cities, & @chachovaladez held down the fort. We’re gonna sleep for days.
