Many following the resurgence of VR starting with Oculus' 2012 Kickstarter have bet their careers that VR and AR will be a disruptive technology, but sometimes it takes buy-in from one of the world's largest and most influential investment banks to prove to the rest of the world that you aren't crazy.
"In the 1970s, the Norwegian state began to deconstruct that undemocratic ideal by taking upon itself the traditional, unpaid household duties of women. Caring for children, the elderly, the sick, and the disabled became the basic responsibilities of the universal welfare state, freeing women in the workforce to enjoy both their jobs and their families. Paradoxically, setting women free made family life more genuine. Many in Norway say it has made both men and women more themselves and more alike: more understanding and happier. It also helped kids slip from the shadow of helicopter parents. In Norway, both mother and father in turn take paid parental leave from work during the child’s first year or longer. At age 1, however, children start attending a neighborhood barnehage (kindergarten) for schooling spent largely outdoors. By the time kids enter free primary school at age 6, they are remarkably self-sufficient, confident, and good-natured. They know their way around town, and if caught in a snowstorm in the forest, how to build a fire and find the makings of a meal."
" The Ministry of Finance recently calculated that those additional working mothers [entering the work force in large numbers from the 1970s] add to Norway’s net national wealth a value equivalent to its “total petroleum wealth”—currently held in the world’s largest sovereign-wealth fund, worth over $873 billion."
Also, the US could have set up something similar with the recent windfall from shale oil.
Decades later, the nutritional establishment, not wanting to undermine its own authority, is still reluctant to change the recommendations to avoid fat, and they still say nothing about limiting sugar. But evidence continues to mount that sugar, not fat, is the problem. And those that speak the truth about sugar are starting to gain traction.
Hopefully someday soon official nutritional guidelines will be backed by science and will recommend limiting sugar intake and stop vilifying fat. Until then, we have to rely on other sources for nutritional guidelines. Personally, I highly recommend limiting sugar intake :)
I'm not "low carb" like Atkins, eating bacon and cheese or anything extreme. Just no added sugars and I eat lots of protein and veggies. It looks many months to adjust though. Sugar is very addicting!
Love it as an art-form collaboration between the developers and players :)
