This week I went to some fun events! I went to a meetup about role playing games (I admit I don’t know a ton about that space, so it was fun to learn from the speakers), and The Mux Informational (they are doing some interesting things with building real-time video), and Remix Conf. They were all virtual, but it was fun getting to learn some things that I don’t know as much about, and cheer on speakers.
I also did an interview on a Brazilian channel that came out this week as well (it’s in English but has Portuguese subtitles). Please feel free to check it out!
