Though miscommunications still happened, issues could be identified and resolved rather quickly because everyone was in one room.
If it feels like everyone is jumping on the Virtual Reality / 360-video Hyperloop that’s because the consumer market has hurdled from zero to roughly six million units in just a few months.

They were called "imports"! Tower Records used to give out a free rag called "Pulse!" with a regular column titled Desert Island Discs.

You can have the best gear, the most fantastic storyline, and the perfect talent to help you tell it. All of this means nothing, however, if you can’t find the perfect location to capture it.
