Cyberspace becomes the Metaverse - In his Novel “Snowcrash” Neal Stephenson described the Metaverse, an interactive online world where people could engage in anything from sword fights to romance. In an interview related to his new book “REAMDE” (and yeah that’s an anagram for “Read Me”) he talks about how today’s massive multiplayer online gaming forums have become both the realization of the Metaverse concept, and are pointing the way to the future of cyberspace.
Other people considered experts on the subject seem to agree - a startup called Entermeta gives away little on its website but bills itself as:
An organization of futurists, technologists, developers, artists, designers, entrepreneurs, and other great minds sharing their visions and insights for the future of the future.
