Extended Metaverse Workshop in Zoom

Zoom is an Example of an Extended Metaverse

It drives my OpenSimulator friends crazy when I say that Zoom is a metaverse.

So I say OpenSimulator is a Canonical Metaverse, and Zoom is an Extended Metaverse.

How do we resolve that OpenSimulator is not the One True Metaverse? We expand the (operational) definition. Let the “friendly” discussion begin!

“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.
