A roundtable discussion led by PubNub’s COO, Casey Clegg, exploring the topics of what it means to be human in a virtual world.

Is empathy possible in the metaverse? What can we do to build better experiences in Virtual Spaces?

This week on The PubNub PubCast, we are hosting a roundtable discussion with Second Life and High Fidelity Founder, Philip Rosedale, Holistic Psychiatrist, Dr. Marlynn Wei, and Dr. Wanda Gregory of the University of Washington to address the topics of what it means to be human in a virtual world. From the potential psychological effects of virtual interactions to the ethical and moral guidelines for social cyberspace, this episode covers how to build empathy into the Metaverse. 

The PubNub PubCast is a podcast that brings together executives and product leaders from a variety of industries to discuss how they're creating innovative and engaging virtual experiences: the approaches they’ve taken, the things they’ve uncovered, and how they're creating truly connected online communities.
