Today Viv ends her time with Access Granted by chatting with Chris McDowall. Chris and Viv first met at Kiwifoo earlier this year when he showed us a sneak peek of his latest project. If you haven’t seen the “We Are Here” book yet, check out the link below, it is beautiful and amazing.Chris first got into maps playing Dungeons And Dragons and learning about geography at university and he hasn’t looked back since.- https://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-mcdowall-6057b427/- https://www.masseypress.ac.nz/books/we-are-here/- https://twitter.com/fogonwaterAnd so, we all say goodbye to Viv as she says goodbye to you:"Well, thanks for listening once again, and this time, I’m going to say Heoi anō tāku mō nāianei, that is all for now. You probably already know, Mike, Raj and myself are wrapping this up and this is my last official stint with the crew. It’s been awesome talking to you across the internet, and if you ever bump into me, please come say hi. Ngā mihi nui me te ngā manaakitanga… thank you so much and best wishes"♥------------------------------------------------------Behind the scenes of tech, media, and startups, hosted by Mike Riversdale, Raj Khushal, Vivian Chandra, and others.

In the penultimate Viv hosted podcast she gets to go and talk with Gavin de Steur at Uneeq, well in fact she gets to talk to Gavin AND an online virtual human.Gavin, originally from South Africa, is interested in bringing back the emotional human-to-human connection and with UneeQ (formerly Faceme), started here in NZ, he has that opportunity. Uneeq has recently expanded out to Asia, Australia, Europe, and the USA which bring with it a challenging growth path because of the many different communication styles.- https://www.linkedin.com/in/gavin-de-steur/- https://digitalhumans.com/------------------------------------------------------Behind the scenes of tech, media, and startups, hosted by Mike Riversdale, Raj Khushal, Vivian Chandra, and others.
