cheseball:@tommoody I think you need to try one of the newer headsets, because the old ones had a lot of problems.
cheseball:@tommoody It's more about seeing if the experiences are good and if they are, how is that any different from spending a lot of time on a forum, chat or video game? It's not going to replace a flat screen, I don't think there are enough use cases for that, its just another option. The optics of a screen so close to the face sounds hellish, but don't we already do that with phones?
cheseball:@tommoody i see your point, but my typing was so awful, haha.
cheseball:@tommoody "So one ring to rule them all isn't something I'm all that worked up about because Oculus might come out as the defacto device, but I don't think that will invalidate experiences on other VR headsets" , but yeah that works.

cheseball:@1au @tommoody - if you're applying view count to a found object, it can inform the audience about what it is exactly that you're presenting. a low view count can make it feel like you're one of the first to something genuine and interesting that no has ever seen, but a high view count could mean you're presenting something thats been processed once and giving it a different context; it could be subversive. if its your own work it gets a little more tricky because theres always the question of, is it being presented to the desired audience and if so, did they respond to it? and also is your work being presented out of context as a found object to an unintended audience how is that conversation adding or subtracting to the aesthetic you designed for the piece. i guess what im saying is that you should think of the view count as something non-static and it can help your aesthetic if you know how to play with it.
1au:do you think a view count can lessen the power of an aesthetic. discuss @cheseball @tommoody
