I'm currently reading "The Metaverse: And How it will Revolutionize Everything", written by Matthew Ball.
It's a really interesting, in-depth perspective at what "the Metaverse" is (and isn't) today, what it might become in the future, and what's required to get us from here to there.
Some people might believe the entire concept is ludicrous, far-fetched, or simply impossible.
To those people, I offer the screenshot below of a chart from Ball's book:
The chart compares the ten largest public companies by market capitalization on March 31st, 2002 with the ten largest twenty years later, on January 1st, 2022.
You will almost immediately notice that only one company, Microsoft, appears on both lists.
You might also notice that most of the companies that have replaced the 2002 behemoths didn't even exist in 2002.
It's easy to laugh at the idea of "the metaverse" today, especially with all the (over)hype it gets on a regular basis.
Keep an open mind, because change is the only constant.
