Viveport MakeVR #vr modeling tool
Pro: Tools for editing based on object interactions: add, subtract, slice, stamp; full color palette and some textures; extrusion of arbitrary face shapes; .obj export
Con: No fine-tuning of faces/vertices
Tried out a couple of in #vr modeling tools today.
#GoogleBlocks is a brand new free tool.
Pro: extrusion, .obj export (if you post to their public gallery), edit vertices and faces
Con: no textures, unreasonably limited color palette (~12 colors), not able to permanently group objects

Is Facebook Taking Its First Steps Into VR Surveillance?
“Virtual Reality, for a people-farmer like Facebook, is the ultimate behavioral analysis lab,” said Balkan. “It can control every factor, from the lighting to every sound you hear and gauge and analyze your responses.”
When referencing online articles, I find it disturbing to not have another means of reference than page reference, like maybe paragraph reference. It's not a thing in MLA right now, but maybe it should be?
Or maybe soon thesises will be written in virtual reality programming and we can walk through the argument, and find the source hyperlinked directly to the words on the page.
