  • Hi Matt,

    I really enjoyed your presentation and your demo of the artefact. You spent a great deal of time and effort in carefully design and implementation which reflects in the high quality of your artifact. I was instrigued by your theory regarding replicating the work environment office workers are used to in a virutal environment to make working from home fun and engaging. We are definitely creatures of habit and social beings who have been programmed for many years to physically interact and collaborate with other human beings. The pandemic has definitely been hard on most of us especially the social and extroverted ones that gained energy by socially interacting with others.

    I know you mentioned that some of the functionality and integrations with Google Cloud marketed by Gather did not live up to the expectation; however, I found your demo very engaging and really enjoyed the office spaces you created for us. I would be interested to know how your experiment goes in real-life when you have your co-workers try it for the week.

    It was a pleasure being in this course with you. All the best and I hope our paths cross again. I know you had mentioned that you are close to graduating, so good luck with your integration route, whether it is essay, project or thesis.

    Kind Regards,

  • Hi Matt,

    Excellent presentation and a well-designed artefact, it was good to explore Gather. I got a good feel of the overall application through your presentation and demo. I feel your design had a very realistic approach by mimicking your work layout, if you are able to push this in your organization then it may completely revamp and change the way meetings are done by adding a fun aspect to it. Also, during the demo when we went into each individual rooms, I felt it replicated a real office like structure where you are unable to hear the person in the next room. I also liked how to you started off your presentation by relating it to different theories.
