The Plain View

Neil Stevenson invented the Metaverse. At least from an imaginative point of view.Other of his sci-fi writers had similar ideas, but while VR pioneers were already building artificial worlds, Stephenson’s 1992 novel snow crash Not only did it embody a vision of escaping to a place where the digital has replaced the physical, it gave it a name. That book cemented him as a major author, and he’s enjoyed great success ever since. The next step in computing. Became a “metaverse” buzzword, and Big Tech raced to bring it into production. Most notably, Facebook spent billions on its reality lab and renamed it Meta. From Microsoft to Amazon, everyone has suddenly come up with a metaverse strategy, but we still don’t understand the technology that makes it happen.

At the time, Stevenson said his recent novels, on subjects involving climate engineering. “That turned into ‘Neil, what do you think of the Metaverse? Book tour,'” Stevenson says.The answer Stevenson provided to the question was a mixture of bewilderment and, as WIRED’s writer noted, disgust. snow crash And it wasn’t fun to watch his fictional creations be colonized by profit-seeking, growth-hungry giants.

In fact, justice seems to be the branding for this new venture. Vessenes admits there were initial suspicions that Stephenson was “Kardashian-ing” and jumping on a bandwagon he accidentally started. “That could be the first question: Is Neil selling his brand to some metaverse company?” The big question was whether his Lamina1 was for cash. “But when people talk to us, they conclude that this is a principled effort,” he says. “So they ask, ‘Is this real?’ Are we actually going to do this?” Hoffman wrote a personal check after assuring that he would do so.
