Mantra? Description? Cool words stitched together?
"Quixotic Bravado" is a pretty accurate representation of my personal and professional pursuits. I've taken the phrase to heart and it is the origin of "quixado" (kwĭk-sä'dō), the online username I've used for over 20 years.
It's now also the name of my production entity. With some hustle and luck, it will create and produce content across different platforms and leverage the culmination of my creative, community, and technological experiences. The desired outcome: Fun and exciting experiences, stories, and games that take place in the real world, online, and into the evolving experiences that will be part of Web3 and the hyperverse or metaverse or whatever we wind up calling it.
In the meantime, check out this mini-project called "Real, Made-Up Places." Location information from Places NFTs were fed to machine learning programs to "imagine" what they might look like. The results are pretty amazing.
