Merhaba! Don’t you feel all warm and fuzzy when your peers laud you? Recognition is important to humans—it improves productivity, enhances morale and raises standards. Now, not everyone watches the Emmy’s; but they like any awards show, it serves a very specific purpose i.e. spotlighting artists, fueling careers. Here’s my point: Oculus won its first Emmy for the VR short film HENRY. Its director Ramiro Lopez Dau said: “We hope this represents a tipping point for the VR industry.“ 
You might be right to think that we need a few more tipping points; or one ginormous POKÉMON-GO-type breakthrough for cinematic VR to reach critical mass. Yet more than the industry laurels, declarations from Presidents, or the very raison d'être of virtual reality, it is the little voice in the back of your head that you must listen to first. The one that compels you to stop being a silent observer and contribute towards progress. 
This week’s edition tackles such undertakings with revealing interviews, articles and more. Enjoy reading!
