Bret Victor’s New Computer is a Building
I saw Dynamicland in the latest Eyeo Festival announcement and I can’t stop thinking about it.
Founded by Bret Victor, Dynamicland is a non-profit long-term research group in the spirit of Doug Engelbart and Xerox PARC. They’re inventing a new computational medium where people work together with real objects in the real world, not alone with virtual objects on screens. They’re building a community workspace in the heart of Oakland, CA– the entire building is the computer.
I love finding ideas this big. It makes me introspective. It makes me curious about what more I can do.
