I'm happy to announce that the WebXR Community Forum is now live! If you've been wanting to join a community of other WebXR developers but prefer forums to realtime chat apps like Discord, I'd highly encourage you to stop by! https://www.webxr.community/
This project is taking everything I have
I’m making tons of progress, but this much work on a single project is exhausting.
Note to future Joe: you do your best work when you work on multiple unrelated projects in different tech stacks.
Some personal news:
“I deserve to be happy” is something that I want to be true, something that I want to internalize. I can’t do that while I’m repressing this aspect of myself, so it’s time to be honest with myself and with those around me.

I came up with what I think is a clever way to keep a dev log on a project using the tools that I like to use, without having those posts spoil the jokes in the project I'm building.
"Hiding public posts until the right time"
I just added super-secret blooping to my website for this project.
I can use Bloops to post updates and thoughts every day, but not one will stumble upon.
Once I launch the product, I'll push these to the main feed for anyone who wants to read about the development process.
