    1. The project contributes to better understanding of the root causes of the ecological crisis, brings important insights into sustainability transitions at grassroots and points of friction with the growth economy, and enhances our knowledge on concrete solutions for alternative ways of organizing the economy.
    1. Graphic designers produce representations of society, and they help create access to information and ideas. But who gets to be represented, and who gets access?

      It is essential to question what we see as authority just because it looks official. The internet has opened information and platform access to many more people. What that looks like in the future is literally up to us. We can have a great effect as visual artists and strategic thinkers on how culture grows. What will "inclusive" mean 20 years from now. Will we still be fighting the same fights?

    1. Are there better reasons for pursuing your education than getting a job? What are they?

      Education is so much more than preparing for a future job. The purpose of education is to understand the world around us. We are always in an endless pursuit of knowledge. We cannot know everything, but we will surely try. Education helps us expand our minds and understand complex ideas. This passage challenges the reason why we seek further knowledge. To see education as not just an end goal for a job but to see education as a means to understand the mystery of the world around us.

    1. The digital world, in essence, has facilitated system-environment interaction with better ex-periences and outcomes. Users are thereby empowered with better in-terfaces and smarter objects, using which they engage with the world around them (Bornet et al., 2021; Pillai et al., 2020; Wirtz et al., 2018). In fact, ’interactivity’ could be considered as the basis of all revenue-generation exercises and relationships

      research has also shown that gamified environments and the experiential value they offer enhance information exchange in a plat-form (Weretecki et al., 2021). Thus, multi-sided platforms bring together people from different groups under a single umbrella, whereby activities and features that enable socializing were shown to increase participatory experience and interactivity (Pacauskas et al., 2018). These platforms facilitate inter-action by providing the required infrastructure and governance (Wirtz et al., 2019). Here, an essential feature of any platform is to maintain positive interactions between same-side users and across the different sides of a platform (Hagiu & Wright, 2015), which effectively adds ’socialness’ as a feature to a digital platform ecosystem (Dwivedi et al., 2021)

    2. The primary purpose of a platform is to bring together groups of users. Notably, the higher the interaction among the network users, the higher the network’s value. Hence, a platform’s strength lies in its ability to both retain and attract users
    3. The customer experience has been conceptualized as a holistic sen-sory feeling resulting from the interaction of customers with all possible touchpoints with the firm (Gentile et al., 2007; Lemon & Verhoef, 2016), and well-designed service system enhances the customer experience (Berry et al., 2006). The literature suggests that firms need to cultivate an ecosystem perspective for creating and delivering high-quality ex-periences (Patrício et al., 2011). Berry et al. (2006) provided a service system design framework and advanced that different dimensions are needed to build positive experiences

    1. Experience and luxury brands are among the first retailing businesses to develop a revenue strategy for the metaverse, building on what music artists have done since 2020. They are partnering with gaming platforms and 3D companies to create metaverse ecosystems or to integrate their brands and products into other

      Fashion and clothing brands believe that as people spend more time in virtual environments, they will attach more importance to styling their virtual lives and personae, creating demand for virtual items. In the longer term, apparel retailers envisage virtual malls where people can try clothes, shoes, make-up and accessories on their avatar to see how a particular look fits and feels. Malls will be extensions to digital spaces where shoppers socialise with friends, interact with influencers and access customised services or exclusive branded merchandise.

    2. The digital natives of Generation Z and younger millennials show most interest in the metaverse. Commercial pathfinders in the metaverse will be brands that want to affirm a reputation for early-mover digital media innovation. As far more young men than women play video games, the metaverse is heavily skewed towards young males, slowing broader acceptance. Evidence from e-sports suggests influencer marketing will be important in drawing female and older consumers into virtual environments.
    1. Those opportunities will lie in all three layers of the metaverse stack: the infrastructure (blockchains, 3D-rendering engines and telecoms networks); the interface (headsets, smart glasses, bodysuits and m-world platforms and payments systems); and, most of all, the economic interactions (the experiences and the products and services offered to industrial, commercial and retail customers).

      components

      Consumer adoption will dictate progress. Building a critical mass of AR users will be vital, as scale creates a virtuous circle of more content creators and users.

    2. There are already some 800 million mobile AR users, according to ARtillery Intelligence, a San Francisco-based metaverse research firm.

      By comparison, full immersive XR head-mounted displays are still relatively little used -- fewer than 30 million, nearly all VR systems, and are forecast by ARtillery Intelligence to reach only 88 million by 2025.

    3. The metaverse's promoters say extended reality (XR) technologies, which include AR, VR and hybrid reality (HR), will take it far beyond that, entwining social, consumer and business experiences.
    4. Direct-to-avatar (D2A) will become a mainstream retail channel.
    1. But a new era has arrived, requiring brands to rethink how they reach new consumers and engage with existing ones. Instead of pushing content to pre-selected groups, as was so effective over the last decade, the key now is to pull in customers with a fast-paced stream of creative campaigns.
    2. Brands will embrace creative campaigns and new channels such as retail media networks and the metaverse to achieve greater ROI on marketing spend and gather valuable first-party data that can be leveraged to deepen customer relat

    4. only 3 percent of respondents listed web3 as a top theme shaping 2023 and only 8 percent said it had been a major consideration for 2022.

      'While metaverse-related initiatives will likely play a growing role in the industry in years to come, for now it is a nascent opportunity. Executives are more focused on addressing near-term challenges to their businesses'

    5. Fashion companies will need to rethink their operations. Many will update their organisational structures, introducing new roles or elevating existing ones to target key growth opportunities and respond more effectively to risk. Brands may also choose to see the next year as a time to team up with manufacturing partners to sharpen their supply chain strategies. This may involve nearshoring to better respond to fast-shifting consumer demand or leaning more heavily on data analytics and technology to manage inventory efficiently.

      continues 'As e-commerce growth normalises after its pandemic boom, the sheen has started to wear off the direct-to-consumer digital model that propelled many brands over the past decade'

    6. McKinsey expects global fashion sales growth of 5 percent to 10 percent for luxury, and negative 2 percent to positive 3 percent for the rest of the industry in 2023

    1. The volume is premised upon the understanding that “in capitalistsocieties the majority of people subsist by combining paid employmentand unpaid domestic labor to maintain themselves . . . [hence] thisversion of social reproduction analyzes the ways in which both laborsare part of the same socio-economic process.”

      Part 2 aims to supplement the economic questions addressed in Part 1 to fully account for the vast unpaid and uncompensated labor that constitutes the labor process within the university. A proper analysis of labor in the university, and Contemporary DEI's role in facilitating it is to understand the socio-economic productive and reproductive forces that produce student, faculty and administrative subjectivity.

    1. illian Murphy, star of the new horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II, is something to behold: X-ray eyes at once penetrating and ethereally blue, cheekbones so pronounced you could stretch out and go to sleep on them.

      Many features begin with some 'colour' to set the scene of the interview, such as some details about the room where it is taking place, the appearance of the interviewee, or the obstacles that they've overcome to make it happen. Even in this interview - which takes place via video call - the writer starts with that colour. Note that he also establishes a news hook to the piece - "star of the new horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II" - which justifies the newsworthiness of this interview (a new movie)

    1. Hypothes.is reminds me a lot of some of the primary goals of the MeAggregator JISC project, as well as having a lot in common with other annotation tools (obviously!). The implementation appears smooth and reliable, and having just revisited it (thanks to a Facebook post by a friend of a friend), I wish I had been using it for a while now. I suspect it will be finding its way in to my teaching practice very soon.<br> This page on their site "Back to School with Annotation: 10 Ways to Annotate with Students" has some useful suggestions. I particularly need to check out the private groups and sharing options, and investigate the possibility of collating annotations (potentially producing new documents from a set of annotations).
