from Metaverse Roadmap :
“What happens when video games meet Web 2.0? When virtual worlds meet geospatial maps of the planet? When simulations get real and life and business go virtual? When your avatar becomes your blog, your desktop, and your online agent? What happens is the metaverse.”
Those people are thinking about what will happen in the next 10 years about the interconnexion of the virtual and the real world. The participants include the CEO of Google Earth, the co-founder of Multiverse, and important people at Sun, Microsoft, Linden Lab, researchers, and so on.
And what better way to predict the future is there than to create it?
