But they're big guy Harari guy, the second file, so he's out, and that should help coffee as well.

"So many of our different teams there's the really obvious ways and there's the less obvious ways so right now we're building out some of the obvious things like great recommendations collaborative filtering a lot of the safety and and moderation automation is going through machine learning AI where i think we're gonna see in the future can that be part of our creation to can we leverage leverage that for generative things in help all people build worlds and stuff like that so i think we're probably going to have m. l. built into just about every team every product we have so for air NPR NPR which are lumped together they should be in but their funds would you think what is the what is on the horizon for you all in those two yet super interesting stuff when the last big VR push happened happened with oculus and five coming out we were very much engaged because we're all about building these virtual the world's in virtually immersive experiences VR is the perfect air is a little more complicated but get that so we jumped all over like oh my goodness yes we gotta make sure we're in we're almost too late it's about to be here so we'd like worked really hard we got our oculus support launch than we're like maybe maybe it's not quite there yet we were a little bit early we played around with daydream and some other stuff but ultimately what we realized is it's still not quite there is not exactly clear why everyone has different theories about it some some people are like still too expensive but i don't think that's right because the people who have headsets thousand dollars on there so yeah no it's definitely not that it's a that's a great point is like how every every huge innovation either starts in gaming or starts in enterprise business right in his like his there you know it's either a super fun in becomes utility or a super expensive and then it becomes a utility that's reductive but point being that it's like it's definitely not too expensive because people have eight thousand dollar gaming systems so clearly it's not too expensive and people bought the devices clear that i mean that's not main street appeal he'll like not everyone can do that but like i sure the price points out the problem exactly i think we're just not there in the hardware that the the the resolution on the fidelity is not there and you can't do it for a long time i mean that's like part of things like you're just gonna like a lot we're just in our previous interview you know he's like i'm gay my whole life i can't sit in one for more than ten minutes without getting dizzy we can play a game for two hours and then you play VR game for ten minutes nobody wants to do that exactly but long term i think i'm super bowl i think this is a good case of moore's law i don't know if you've heard this one before where it's that with any new technology the impact is overestimated in the short term in underestimated in the long term so i think people were like over over that the recent round VR was going to take over but i think long term it could change everything so fundamentally i'm picturing the matrix style everyone's living in a bubble with VR headset on so we'll see i mean i think it's a matter of time you know you look like how bad alexa version one was is like you know and all this stuff like it just it gets better exponentially so of course that early version is just not going to be good some of these technologies take a long autumn like i was in college in the ninety s and i remember them saying my professors machine learning neural networks we thought this stuff going to work in the sixties turns out it's a big joke now just it was gonna take fifty years not thirty years so and i think that we got to in this is more of an aside but you know you have like moore's law rights were like man this is how innovation works right so you're like hey we can do this double chip capacity but it's like m. l. does work that way or whatever it is a are do you think that as the creator community you can figure out how to do those things then you have the ability for like these hits to emerge setting that's part of the problem too is like you know if nobody can use news the us attack it's kinda useless but you also have no one there's like there's no benefit to creating like why would you be creating just to heart cartwright so i've heard the argument i don't really believe that either yet because we've had several years now since the the recent headsets have come out and people tried to create so many different things some different experiences in none of them stock against beat sabres the most popular maybe jahr chat i don't think there is a killer app yet i think the hardware is just not one of the things that i super interesting about the company is just how long it takes to build something great y'all been added for a long time and i think you know to molise specially in a marketplace where it's like mike you're constantly serving customers this new amazing thing but you said to over two million people now two million creators a month are creating some content that somebody else plays that's amazing sh where do we go from here you know what is the longer term vision that company i know you all are are growing like crazy word on the street is hundreds of amazing job opportunities which is just super exciting for listeners sner who i'm sure we're gonna check the cruise page that will link up in the show notes but but what does this look like what are the next five years for us we are still working on are are the same mission we've always been working on creating a platform to enable immersive three d. experiences and virtual social play we still got a long way to go to get there we're probably only ten percent of the way there we want to have something that's that so much more amazing than where we are today so there's a lot of core tack we still need to build in i feel hunger to get there that we have so much left to do taking a step back are larger company picture couple of the big things that they're come up over the next few years we're doing a big push international right now that's committed to really open up to the world rep boxes in a pretty cool place where because we have such diversity of content we can succeed around the world in a really special way where people who want engage with different types of things it might be worth at a pizza place in america might be working sushi restaurant in japan we can have all those experiences on on on one platform this year next year focusing a lot on bring roadblocks around the world we've signed a joint venture with ten cent in china cool and so that's really exciting to bring roadblocks china whilst kind of the crucible it's really hard to succeed china but i think we have have an amazing opportunity there and then looking at a little bit further i'd say the biggest thing we're going to do is expand roadblocks to to a broader range of ages traditionally we've been really focused on kids and right now about half our platform is under thirteen in a little bit more in the future we want abroad in that age range not to lose that core group of people but to have an have a platform that that appeals to a much broader range and there's some really key things we need to do to get there so i we need to make it's your avatar your your representation of yourself which is important can be a lot more expressive right now tends to be a little bit child-like little block easy and primitive we we wanna expand that range have all the way from the simple mini figure type toy up to a very modern cool avatar go appeal to a sixteen year old or an eighteen year old or thirty year old and let them can figure it and layer on clothing and create all kinds of cool things and customize it and make it feel very much like them so once you have that identity you appeal a wider range another really big piece we need to unlock is just a range of content that appeals to more people so we have so many creators that are engaged we have people that want to create these different types of experiences is what we're not doing a great job of yet is surfacing the different content who different groups in that's such a big thing it's more than just age range it's all about having niche content long tail things like that when you think about all the platforms out there that serve long tail content youtube or net flicks six or whatever they're doing great discovery that's retailer who you are you watch one video they show you others look like that we're barely scratching service on that we haven't even really done yet everyone sees the same things so win we unlock that we unlock the ability to have experiences appealed fueled a lot of different types of people but also is tough i mean i think for you know for kids that literally you change your changing really rapidly soleil were you do when you're fourteen in what you're interested in when you're sixteen is potentially different you know my netflix algorithm probably change too much you know unless like you're bit yeah right they more or less now but you know i think part of that to his when you have so much data now in with them melania and things like that you can start to look at like a now that we have all the stuff gets blunkett or something but you can look at all of these data points figure out like what are some really interesting trends that you know potentially like nobody is really thought rhyming this pretty uncharted charted waters it is that's that's absolutely right end hopefully we don't have to figure it out manually say we can we can use as the amount of day we've got one hundred million players on our platform that's an enormous amount of data about their behavior and their tests that's being generated we can learn all kinds of things all kinds of interesting these content final question on this part of the interview then we'll get into lightning round back in the day you service CTO keo wired planet which was i mean you could describe to listeners somewhere between internet radio kind of

planet and it was led by a real visionary driven executive executive call thomas hale and he had a mission to bring internet radio to independent labels musicians there's some other internet radio at the time but what wasn't being served was the long tail content which i thought was super cool so we created that company it was right in their original dot com bubble so we grew up from two people to seventeen something like that eventually everything was crashing around us we managed to get acquired by a company called listen dot com which eventually got sold to real networks so it's a really good experience i was so young in so green i'd never worked anywhere before so i could code like crazy but i so so raw and untrained i remember hired this guy and i'm quoting he's like i'm you should really use version control i'm like what's that conflict it's like oh let me show you that's really cool there's this thing called CVS and you can check stuff in i'm like oh my goodness this is awesome wow i'm learning so much like in retrospect i probably should have like gotten some training because of course especially in those days in college it was just completely abstract abstract land the classes are not as you anything remotely practical it's just like algorithm analysis don't worry nothing okay so so that was that was where a planet in it was also a platform sorts which really has an affinity for my own personality i love burning building platforms don't say bernie not burning platform to keep them out but what i learned from that was how hard it is when you don't own the IP at the end of the day we were were at the whim of the labels and eventually we moved on from just independent music to all music and we are basically like the one of the major labels in whatever pricing scheme they were just dictate or whatever rules and broadcasting is like oh my goodness really hard and so i- vowed never to put myself in that position again and if you look at how the industry evolved pretty much a lot of creativity was stifled spotify sized come along and crushed everybody but the way they did it was by launching europe right there just couldn't even get the rights in america so you see how how oh stifled the whole industry wise and it took it took an outsider to come in and change it wouldn't it wouldn't it changed in the thing spotify would never been a successful as it was if it wasn't for all the social platforms like that's the other piece is.

"And we are on location in sunny san mateo at roadblocks HQ hey super good to be here it's great to be here great day we're gonna be talking about games when you're talking about your background owned and a bunch of really cool ale m l. staffs may are VR staff but before we end that how did you get into technology oh oh yes so i was basically as soon as i saw technology it just grabbed me like from the minute i saw my first computer so it was just love at first sight i think my first hands on computer usage was in third grade so this is back can a early eighties there was a special class just for a couple of us in our elementary school where we could could use an apple two to program a game yeah and it was ridiculous because there was no instruction nobody knew how to program was one one hour a week for like a month or something at the end they're like okay show us the game you wrote of course i had nothing but i would love to i it's funniest i still feel bad about that like thirty years later and like i could make a better game had some instruction something like that but i i loved computers computers from the minute i saw them i wanna create on computers and says starting when i was eight or nine ten a. b. programming every we day after school just hours a day pretty much just kept doing that not so funny is like the idea of the computer lab where all the computers are they go there and you can access all the computers yet now the computer labs sydney in her pocket i loved the dapple two GS was my family at that and just like every like early memory of like i remember my brother wrote his his junior thesis assists on elmo talking type and it's like elmo's toxins complain in fact that's awesome so flash forward to now kind it tell us about what your role is was the scope of responsibilities and what you all are building yes oh i am a VP of engineering green we have three main piece of engineering here and the way we split up roadblocks is by product facing teams teams so individual teams that encompass one product commission so one might be social one might be around our mobile app something like that each team has the engineering leadership engineers the product the art design analysis things like that so roadblocks disfigure about what roadblocks is building for the people who don't know so we are trying to build a platform of virtual creation the idea is we want got to create virtual worlds virtual three d experiences that are fun to play with your friends and to enable a platform and where are players in our creators are all members of our community so the creators are building this content on our platform and they're making these different games they're publishing them they're playing them with their friends and then they're also letting everyone else who's on our platform play these games uh-huh and so every game by default runs multi-player and it's in the cloud and you can join very quickly and be playing and engaging aging with something that's really unique the idea is that these creators make this content and as they get better and better and more engaged the content level starts wants to go up and they can make really popular things that can turn into a fulltime career and even make some money out of it and that becomes their their job viz making awesome robots content so overall yet we're trying to create this virtual worlds system and get lots of people on it stuff like that have there been any projects or or things that people have built that are particularly like exciting or you you made news or anything like that yeah so we get super excited internally when stuff comes out the when when you have two million people creating content on our platform anyone months to get just an amazing collection of stuff and and you get stuff you wouldn't expect right so one of our top games is work at a pizza place the basic premise of the game you go you sit there at the cash register mr or you get a job shoveling pizzas in the oven then you go deliver the pizzas and he kinda worked together as a team and you get money for that and i think it's a little little bit special that something like that gets created so popular on our platform you can imagine at a major game studio trying to pitch this is probably not gonna happen happen right is probably not going to be a funded project it's gonna seem to crazy but because our creator community is comes from our player base and they understand the mindset of kids ed's teenagers they have this natural understanding of what's fun that's maybe a little different in a little bit cookie so we have these really unique interesting the experiences that you wouldn't expect to see anywhere else i think by girl from my play came on like ninety nine percents sure i love love the fact that creators are empowered in a way that they couldn't necessarily be found otherwise and it also stems from like there's no inputs you know on them there's no nobody's telling them what to do or like where the chicago oh that kind of truly creating something and i think it allows for that serendipity salinas everybody remembers like flappy bird like ridiculously popular popular no one would've ever necessarily sat darren unit decided that game was going to be a hit right right would do the the makers on the platform that for like what is that community like yet it's a community that has an enormous amount of passion when we look at the people who who are making the the content who were most into it they've been on our platform long-time oh really yet they almost always come from the player base and when you ask them how long they've been on the platform the average time something like seven years it's crazy they're so into it and for them it's a community it defines a lot of their life and their creative output and stuff like that and like you say our platform gives them a chance chance to have a bit of creative freedom that's really cool when they start out creating typically just for fun for experimentation it's its own rewarding experience that feeling of creation so our job is to make the tools enable that to really lower the barrier of entry for creativity you can look up our creation tools start making some content drag some cool things in some weapons some zombies sculpture terrain build a cool thing and when you hit publish you're playing with your friends online we make that super seamless within an hour you can be playing a multiplayer game with your friends or something you created and that's that's a really compelling experience i think in today's world the barriers sometimes are so high that this this allows especially kids to have a lot more self self directed play in the open creativity what's the craziest her like weirdest thing that you've been like especially tickled by it was crazy stuff all the time one funny thing that you'll see in our office is something we call critical the mass and what happens is somebody will load up roadblocks game on their computer and then somebody else walk sober and sees it's like oh that's cool oh and then somebody else is it's like that's cool and then all of a sudden you got two people looking at the screen you like something really interesting must be going on over there and all of a sudden the whole officers gathered around so you'll see just as walkie things like the creativity is so amazing engaging so like as playing a a game the other day where your goals just build the biggest longest floppy hat the trails around and follows you and it's just silly it's probably not gonna be one of our top games that takes over our game charts but it's so fun it's great just have those one off experiences that's i'm i'm here for any type of hat related content i'm super here for do you think that like the way that these folks folks are building you know getting found is in a way to accelerate both the ownership that they could become you know like a game i'm sarah gamemaker but a game maker that's hugely successful does it help them get into you know careers like are these people are they full time i'm at this like what is the what is the breakdown there it's really interesting it's one of our goals is to support people scaling up as much che's as they want to be so when i started at roadblocks seven years ago you couldn't pull any money out you would create just us for the joy of creation reward of that still had really interesting things about five years ago we started enabling our creators to pull money out of the system system and that really changed the level of commitment and quality that our top people were making and it enabled the the top creators to make it a fulltime job so right now in this year i think our top people in roadblocks during the pull something like ten million ryan dollars off the system as making the top game however would set team look like is it like yeah that's that's a great question right so when you're talking that level of money it's not one teenager content right you can actually afford to hire a team have an office have a full company deep so we've seen several of these companies spin up now where these developers realized that can turn this into a business they rent an office they incorporate this the hiring people because they're so wired into the community what normally happens is they'll have a few people on site and then they'll have this web of people around the world who are creating content doing one off jobs or they're filling some specific role moderation or creating scripts or whatever it is they they might have a loose network of thirty or forty people that are all indirectly employing it's kind of the workplace of the future in some ways ahead of us in a lot of ways that's so cool so you have so you have literally created companies off of the platform you haven't but yeah we've we've created did hopefully a platform enough space for them to be able to do that so when those when those folks get together that are like the non professional folks like are they just you know people out there like working for software companies have some citizen developers out there is if he will as you know working in finance just said night game the creating games like what's going on so that occasionally happens but that's very atypical a typical the typical profile is somebody started playing on roadblocks when they were ten to twelve they dabbled with creation nation over the years and then as they got older and older that got more and more into started making games got real traction may be started monetize ing then they went to college wjr in college maybe they learn some computer science fundamentals met people there things like.
