I think you confuse pushing a point of view with having an opinion. Several times i have stated that i am happy to consider others views valid while disagreeing. Your earlier post showed a complete failure to understand this, when the point you were telling me i seemed to be missing, was my literal actual opinion that i could point to posted long before in a quote.
In terms of confusing opinions with facts, that is literally what you are doing. you couldn’t even parse the sentence you quoted correctly. i said someone like seb, and you reworked that as ‘hiring seb’. you also reworked it to me recommending someone(an imagined specific person), instead of the obvious meaning, that is to say someone bilingual.
In terms of my comments on the headset, i have never stated how lenses should be designed mechanically, because i don’t know anything about lens design. I do have a degree in industrial/product design, which gives me the ability to take an object with moving mechanical parts and simulate it in very basic ways in my head, which is where a lot of the comments i have made on the design of the headset come from, in particular in relation to ipd adjustment as it relates to potential impact on screen usage, but also concerns about stress concentration points in the hmd which again comes from the materials side of that background, though i currently work in the games industry its not like i forgot everything.
In terms of telling writers how to do coverage of events. Please, point me to where i told a writer how to cover an event. I definitely remember making a topic trying to politely ask people to tell vr press TO cover an event, that the berlin event happened, i do remember arguing that it was newsworthy (and since a bunch of articles got written about it i’m going to score that one to me). I do remember you being angry in that thread though and declaring that because it was not a public event, it was not newsworthy. So by that token if i am guilty of telling them how to do coverage of events, so are you. If i am guilty for declaring it newsworthy, you are guilty for declaring it not newsworthy.
If you don’t like my opinion in a thread, come at it with a solid argument. If it is a good argument, i will change my mind. I changed my mind on the value of the idea of shrinking the fov on the headset with an add on lens happily. What will not change my mind, (and let us be honest here, the reason for your post), is what happened in the press thread.
You asked me a question. i gave a rebuttal, at the end of which i asked a question. you gave a non rebuttal. To which i replied, ‘i will take that as a no’. And from that tiny seed your rage has been building for days up to you uncorking it here. You will be disappointed to hear it had no impact on me. I take that back it actually did have an impact on me in that it made me think saying ’ i’ll take that as a no ’ was unexpectedly provocative/ enraging, and i should probably temper the desire to say similar in future. You have to understand that from my perspective asking me to explain myself then you refusing to explain your thinking in kind was somewhat vexing.
You described me as a man of many talents, but the only talent we have hit on here are knowledge of industrial design(and that’s not even part of my working skillset today). I don’t think trying to organise people to politely ask for coverage of berlin requires a talent. I don’t think pointing out the completely obvious, that pimax needs some kind of bilingual pr staff, requires a talent. I do feel like you have shortchanged me by not listing the one talent i have shown with you above all others.
I do think you should relax. A great deal more than i need to infact. I’m not going to suggest you stop posting though.
