Whatever you think is the “metaverse,” this isn’t it.
I was alarmed at the hype being generated around Meta's metaverse announcements and started gathering up evidence to support my position that it is neither new nor the future.
As part of that process I compared my experience of being very early into the mobile apps space with the current wave of VR/AR/MR/XR claims. I believe I found enough evidence to support my position and that I'm not just being a luddite.
The result was this post on Medium.
