FBL39 - Philip Rosedale: Second Life & the Challenges Facing Digital Technologies Singularity Radio

    • Technology

This week my guest is Philip Rosedale, who is well known as the founding creator of Second Life and his subsequent work with VR and spatial audio company, High Fidelity. 

We were extremely lucky to catch Philip the day after the major announcement of his return to Second Life as an advisor after nearly a decade away from the company. This set the foundation for our conversation, which then took an incredible journey through myriad topics including the pros and cons of virtual reality, decentralization, cryptocurrency and digital assets. We also get into issues around the attention economy, data privacy, advertising revenue models, and wealth disparity in both the physical and digital worlds.
