10/ Here's my thread from last year's @Rec Room RecCon twitter.com/kentbye/status…

11/ @Rec Room's event system is still a bit buggy. It won't let me even try to join until after event starts. I should see a button to join event here, but it wouldn't let me join from my RSVP. I had to go the RecCon room & join from there & missed the @Cameron Brown's keynote intro.

12/ Here's a link to the video of @Cameron Brown's 20-minute #RecCon2022 keynote about @Rec Room: youtube.com/watch?v=y0VAVN… Here's my Voices of VR interview with @Cameron Brown: voicesofvr.com/1027-rec-rooms… twitter.com/kentbye/status…
