Metaverse is the buzziest of buzzwords right now, but what exactly is it? And why is Mark Zuckerberg so invested that he changed the name of Facebook’s parent company to Meta? Does the metaverse already exist in games like Roblox or Fortnite, or is it a lofty dream that might never become true? Will the metaverse make all our dreams come true, or just give us Zoom-meetings in virtual reality? Gian M. Volpicelli is a senior writer at Wired, the influential tech magazine, where he covers digital politics, cryptocurrency and tech regulation. He’s coming to the Nordic Media Days to explain what the metaverse is, and to give his prediction on whether it will live up to the hype.
