Episode 7—Inside the Metaverse: Part 2 with Bill Lichtenstein
Journalist-documentarian Bill Lichtenstein on the amazing ways the metaverse will revolutionize business and commerce
Type “metaverse” into the New York Times search engine and you’ll find over 100 articles published since the beginning of this year, about the same number that appeared in the Times in all of 2021. In 2020, there were five. And in 2019, none. This year the word was added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
But what is the metaverse, what does it do and why should we care? Previously on the Carpenter Group podcast, Change Makers, Peabody-Award winning documentarian Bill Lichtenstein discussed how the metaverse has begun to remap the boundaries of the internet and redefine the possible. In this episode, Bill explores the amazing ways the metaverse will revolutionize business and commerce in the next few years.
