Because the rules of these worlds will not be hampered by the constraints of physics, physical space, barriers like language, physical proximity or time… they can (and will) completely change the way we think about relating to one another. This talk will address some of the new responsibilities and opportunities we can take hold of as a community in this exciting and unpredictable time of immense change.
