Back to 2021 agenda

In recent months the word “Metaverse” has become one of the most used (and abused) terms in the tech industry.

We’ve also heard or read that the Metaverse is going to replace the Internet and maybe we’re all supposed to live there. And we also heard that a very big corporation changed its name to Meta, promising to build “the” (or “a”) Metaverse.

Truth is, the Metaverse is not a simple concept to explain for many reasons. One of them is that it doesn’t necessarily exist. Or maybe it’s already here and we didn’t notice. And should we call it “Metaverse”?

Three voices, three avatars, three experts will join XRSI’s cofounder and journalist Marco Magnano to dig deeper into these questions: Tom Ffiske (The Immersive Wire), Doug Thompson (Bureau of Bright Ideas), and Antony Vitillo (SkarredGhost) will give names to things and tell everyone how they are telling stories about a world that we’re immersing into.
