One Thousand Pioneers


Earlier today the Seattle VR/AR Facebook group, which was launched in June, reached one thousand members.

One thousand people who live in Ballard, Beacon Hill, Georgetown, West Seattle, Fremont, Northgate, the U District, Capitol Hill, Laurelhurst, Wallingford, Lake City, Greenwood, and all mossy spots between.

One thousand people developing apps for Hololens, games for Oculus, interactive content for the Vive.

One thousand filmmakers, developers, musicians, engineers, doctors, architects, designers, educators, artists.

One thousand imaginations captured by the first medium to lay claim to all of reality.

One thousand diverse individuals with varied backgrounds and levels of expertise who are learning, teaching, and sharing what they know with each other.

One thousand brave souls willing to quit their jobs, move across the country to the Pacific Northwest, and throw themselves into the mystery of electronic dreams.

One thousand explorers.

One thousand heroes.

One thousand creators.

One thousand pioneers in the city that invents the future.
