16:33:31 From Dene Grigar : Yes, thank you.
16:44:25 From Leon van Kammen : This coffeeshop closes at 18:00, so if all the lights go out here, then it’s time for me to go 😅
16:47:03 From Leon van Kammen : PDF could be heavy in webXR/the browser (so preventing framerate-issues using serviceworkers eg. would be a big chunk of dev-time)
16:47:25 From Dene Grigar : $250K is not a lot of money over two years
16:56:33 From Leon van Kammen : I guess new hardware coming out, constantly triggers reprioritization in the VR/AR space (hypecycles around 360 video based on VR headsets & 360 camera’s e.g.)
16:58:55 From Peter Wasilko : !! It looks like there is a project to OCR Maths heavy PDFs to visually equivalent LaTeX Source:
16:59:33 From Frode Hegland : This will be web based and the documents will contain all the data
16:59:48 From Rob Swigart : I have to leap into another zoom but this is fascinating. I hope I can read the doc more carefully.
16:59:54 From Dene Grigar : bye
17:00:00 From Leon van Kammen : cheers I’m going as well
17:05:03 From Dene Grigar : Frode, I need to get to campus. Thank you. See you tomorrow.
17:06:29 From Peter Wasilko : @Dene, do you have a url for that work?
17:08:47 From Peter Wasilko : We should also try to support Recordability and Attachability as were once contemplated for AppleScript integration.
17:10:26 From Frode Hegland : What are the provocations for working in VR?
17:10:43 From Frode Hegland : Also, not call it VR or XR?… Immersive computing maybe?
17:12:12 From Michael Bonfert : Replying to “Also, not call it VR…”

That sounds like the immersed user is supposed to do the computing
17:12:28 From Brandel Zachernuk : Replying to “Also, not call it VR…”

Spatial computing!
17:12:34 From Frode Hegland : Reacted to “Spatial computing!” with 😂
17:12:39 From Michael Bonfert : Reacted to “Spatial computing!” with 😁
17:13:02 From Michael Bonfert : Replying to “Also, not call it VR…”

Certainly makes more sense 😉
17:13:21 From Frode Hegland : Immersive environment?
17:13:33 From Peter Wasilko : Reacted to “Spatial computing!” with 😂
17:14:49 From Fabien Benetou : for ref WebDAV but can’t find images or videos in XR for it, but they do exist
17:15:34 From Fabien Benetou : related code
17:16:20 From Fabien Benetou : and more generally knowing that there are bridges with Google Drive, NextCloud, etc
17:18:11 From Fabien Benetou : (do we have a transcript database so that I could search on keyboard, e.g webdav, to get URLs with timings, then link back?)
17:18:20 From Fabien Benetou : (search on keyword)
17:19:30 From Peter Wasilko : We might need to develop some End User Accessible Domain Specific Languages for use in the project.
