The Metaverse Reality

Futurized goes beneath the trends to track the underlying forces of disruption in tech, policy, business models, social dynamics and the environment. I’m your host, Trond Arne Undheim, futurist and author. In episode #110 of the podcast, the topic is: The Metaverse Reality. Our guest is Mark van Rijmenam, PhD, Futurist, Founder of Datafloq & Mavin.

In this conversation, we talk about [the organization of tomorrow, the increasing blending of online and offline worlds, reality and virtual reality, into a hybrid reality. In the metaverse, we might find sovereign identities where people and bots work, play, learn and consume, operating in an increasingly virtually empowered world. We discuss the potential of an impending productization of that hybrid reality with unforeseeable consequences.

After listening to the episode, check out:

Trond's takeaway: The metaverse, for all the hype, is just another version of the internet. It might be a badly designed version, though, and that is not helpful. The upside, perhaps, is that as people embrace virtual worlds they might get some needed break from a tough reality. However, at the moment, the metaverse is looking like it will be productized way early in its lifecycle and that will limit the creation of the kind of innovation space that spurred the internet into a broad humanity expanding platform.]
