Composing for the New Era – An Operational Definition of the Metaverse

Is OpenSimulator a Metaverse? Yes—But why?—And how do we assess other candidate metaverses out there now and in the future? “An operational definition is a procedure agreed upon for translation of a concept into measurement of some kind.” This interactive presentation will give FOUR OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS for assessing SEVEN VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT PLATFORMS, including OpenSimulator.
