ABOUT THE EPISODE For the first time, SIGGRAPH Spotlight presents a live, in-session recording from the annual conference in North America. Tune in to hear Tim Sweeney (founder and CEO, Epic Games) during his SIGGRAPH 2019 Talk, “THRIVE: Foundational Principles & Technologies for the Metaverse.” You’ll hear Sweeney posit the state of the games industry, the rise of creator-centric and social gaming, what the “metaverse” really is, and what it will take to build the medium on a larger scale. Bonus: Listen until the end for a special question-and-answer session between Sweeney and members of the live audience. || MUSIC Podcast theme, "SIGGRAPH," composed by Julius Dobos. || LINKS *Episode* https://s2019.siggraph.org/conference/programs-events/talks/ | https://dlnext.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3306307#heading11 | https://www.epicgames.com | https://twitter.com/timsweeneyepic *Social Media* http://blog.siggraph.org/ | https://www.facebook.com/SIGGRAPHConferences | https://twitter.com/siggraph | https://www.youtube.com/user/ACMSIGGRAPH | https://www.instagram.com/acmsiggraph/ | https://www.linkedin.com/company/acm-siggraph/ *Conference Website* https://s2020.siggraph.org/
