2021 VW: Report from the metaverse. No building needed. It is already here.


Report from the metaverse.   
No building needed.  
It is already here.  
A look at the metaverse of now.

The metaverse

  • "The Metaverse is a collective virtual shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space..."  --Wikipedia
  • Virtual worlds, augmented reality, the internet.  
  • "persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces linked into a perceived virtual universe."
  • These are already here.  Not finished, still developing.
  • But they've been around for years.
  • So the metaverse has been around for years.
  • Not finished, still developing.
  • And we people of the metaverse have been recording them for years.
  • Videos of virtual worlds on YouTube  
  • Virtual worlds are platforms, not games.

User built virtual worlds

  • Some virtual worlds allow users to build things.
  • Some virtual worlds (Second LifeOpenSim) provide tools to make building easy.
  • Many virtual worlds let you rent space and buy or import things to put there.
  • These arrangements give users a sense of "a place of your own."

An example

  • Comedy (search) NSFW
  • Comedy an Lauren's place started in 2007
********************************************

But is it shared space?

  • We people of the metaverse know how to share it.
  • We register in several virtual worlds and move freely among them.
  • We communicate on DiscordSkype, email, etc.
  • We make videos and share them on YouTube.   

Full sharing: OpenSim and Hypergrid

Full sharing: guest entry

  • Some web-worlds allow guest entry without registration.
  • Since web-worlds run in a browser, we can move freely among these worlds

More sharing: The future
