2021 VW: How to spot the fake stories about the metaverse. Those authored by hacks that just rewrite what others have written. Without doing any research themselves.


How to spot the fake stories about the metaverse.   
Those authored  by hacks who
just rewrite what others have written.  
Without doing any research themselves.
The people of the metaverse are really irritated by articles about the metaverse that show total ignorance about the history and current state of the metaverse.

The clues

  • They write as if the metaverse lies in the future.
  • (A little research would find  parts of the metaverse that have been around for years.)
  • They start with the old Snow Crash story that popularized the name.
  • (A little thought would tell them that virtual environments go back to movies, theaters, and oral stories.)
  • They think the metaverse requires head-mounted displays.
  • (Screen displays are widely used for current metaverse activity.)
