A dark barking GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, one of the neighbor dogs spoke out this morning at some ungodly hour. Not once; not twice; but three times! Probably at one of the many stray cats that some “owner” decided to not care about and left them.
Tech Talk Tuesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s TUESDAY and time to talk some Web 3.0.
OK, as many of you know, Facebook changed it’s name to Meta. Zuckerberg changed the name, not the allowed content. I don’t care how many times he goes before Congressional Hearings, Congress ain’t gonna do a damn thing about Zuckerberg! And, any suck ass Texas Republican Senator who says the feds can’t dictate vaccines to business but will cry his little eyes out in Cancun because a business dictates wants to do it’s thing without government intervention…you see the hypocrisy. But I digress.
What was I talking about? Meta. Right. Meta.
Meta is short for Metaverse. Metaverse is the new thing in it’s infancy of development. It is part of Web 3.0 development. It is a virtual world, or WORLDS being developed by programmers.
Right now it the Metaverse is around setting up virtual spaces where you have a 3D avatar to collaborate and meet up. Using the virtual headsets is supposed to increase the stimulation and “feelings” of being in person. An entire new globe being built. Unpopulated and able to accommodate whatever you can think up in the virtual space.
Very much like the movie Ready Player 1. If you have not seen that movie, check it out. That movie will show you the interaction of humans with a Metaverse AND the use of crypto-currency. I don’t know if that was the director’s purpose when the movie was made but it does a great job of laying it out.
A brave new world out there. Right now, the big tech providers are building stuff toward the Metaverse. But, guess what? You can as well. Learn coding on the blockchain and you to can build your own Metaverse. I don’t because I am a history major. Limiting language…I know. But, it is true. Sorry
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember despite marketing of a “perfect fit,” Cinderella’s slipper STILL fell off. Think about THAT for a moment!
