Featured Session: Don’t Write off the Metaverse Because of a Flawed Branding Attempt

About

In the past three years, there’s been a lot written about the metaverse. First, what it was. Then, that you had to get involved or get left behind. Now, that it was all sizzle and no steak.
That conversation was driven by one interpretation of the metaverse, that it would recreate our real-world environments in VR. But the truth is many of us have already been living in a metaverse – because a metaverse exists when you value your online identity just as much as your real-life one.
Hear from ex-Twitch Chief Product Officer Tom Verrilli as he explains how Twitch is a thriving expression of the internet’s capacity to create metaverses and why the internet is better when it’s built for people and communities, and to embrace them and their passions. The question for the product designers of our time isn’t “how can we capture the value of the real world on the internet?” - its “what new worlds can only exist on the internet?"
