Women who are building worlds: Stacy Quackenbush and Paige Dansinger, Dynamite Labs

Podcast: Politely Pushy with Eric Chemi

January 6, 2023 | Hosted by Eric Chemi

Today we are joined by Stacy Quackenbush and Paige Dansinger, two women building “worlds” in the metaverse, providing people with the opportunity to learn and engage through virtual reality spaces. The metaverse hasn’t exactly gotten the greatest rep since Facebook changed its name. But Stacy and Paige explain how there is a lot of misinformation that abounds about this fascinating technological arena. They discuss how they’ve successfully created hundreds of worlds in the metaverse as partners in Dynamite Labs. Paige has even worked with children to build worlds for a museum that they then presented to the World Health Organization. Comprised of photo-realism and three-dimensional assets (which can include NFTs), these worlds give the user the opportunity for social engagement and education. Stacy and Paige explain what building those worlds entail, the difference between Web3 and Metaverse, and how the worlds they’ve built have led to immersive and interactive experiences.
