VR Archivist Fidget Dione Interview


In Ready Player One there is an avatar called The Curator that manages the Halliday Journals Archive. Today we interview a real-life version of The Curator, Fidget Dione.

Under the guidance of the Arthur C Clarke Center for the Human Imagination, and in collaboration with the Annenberg School at USC and Origami Air, Fidget is archivist in-residence for Afterville, a community of futurists based in the metaverse.

She will talk to us about Afterville, and what her position entails. The future is closer than we think, and Fidget is going to prove it! Check it out!

Simulation Nation is a Worldcast where we geek out about all things virtual. Interviewing your favorite Worldbuilder? We got that. Reviewing those cheesy 90s VR movies you love to hate? We got that too.

Let's face it-- we're already living in a simulation, so you might as well embrace it. Plug in to Altspace and join the nation—
