Austin Grossman on XR, the future of experiences and a world without screens

Between Worlds

Austin Grossman is one of my favorite authors. His books (including my personal recommendation, ‘Crooked’) typically reveal an alternate version of the reality you thought you were living in. Given that, his side gig as a design consultant to the video games and mixed reality industry makes total sense. Most recently, he also served as Director of Interactive Design at Magic Leap. We spoke about the emergence of XR (or extended reality), and the challenges of creating content and telling stories in multiple dimensions. According to Grossman, at Magic Leap, they often spoke of preparing for a future world ‘without screens’. So, just how far are we from that world of augmented experiences, and what will it mean for brands and storytellers when we get there?

The Social Network is the Only Thing That Matters (with Austin Grossman)

Public Intellectual

The fourth part in a series about the films of David Fincher and Paul Verhoeven. Jessa invites writer, Tech StartUp employee, and Harvard Alum Austin Grossman onto the show to discuss Fincher’s film about the bad men of tech, The Social Network, all the new forms of misogyny, and why Mark Zuckerberg is an asshole. “You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you're going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an asshole.” SUBSCRIBE to the #PublicIntellectual #Patreon page to access bonus content, merch, and more: https://www.patreon.com/publicintellectual

ABMGW 098 Dr. Impossible schlägt zurück vs Steelheart (Austin Grossman und Brandon Sanderson)

Alle Bücher müssen gelesen werden - Podcast über Science Fiction, Fantasy und Bücher

Thema der Woche: der Sieg des Bösen! Wer langweilige Superhelden sehen will, der möge ins Kino gehen. Viel interessanter sind doch die Bösen, und um die soll es in diesen Podcast gehen: In „Dr. Impossible schlägt zurück“ bekommen wir das klassische Setup: Ein Superschurke der die Welt erobern will, Superhelden, die in stoppen wollen. Ich habe das Buch schon einmal besprochen, in meinem ersten Podcast – hier rede ich besonders über das Hörbuch. In „Steelheart“ von Brandon Sanderson is es so, das überall auf der Welt Leute mit besondern Fähigkeiten auftauchen, sogenannte Epics. Und die haben alle eines gemeinsam: Superhelden sind die alle nicht, das sind alles Psychopathen die nichts und niemand aufhalten kann. Naja, fast niemand. https://abmgw.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/abmgw-098-dr-impossible-vs-steelhart.mp3
