Snow Crash — the birth of the metaverse
I’m reading Snow Crash, from Neal Stephenson and loving it. He created the term “metaverse” in 1992. I’ll give you 3 examples of what happens in his metaverse and you tell me if they sound familiar. Remember, this is 30 years ago!
- There has been a worldwide economic collapse and the federal government of the United States has delegated power and territory to private organizations.
- Hyperinflation has led people to using encrypted electronic money.
- Refugees from Asia come in waves across the Pacific in flimsy ships and hope to build a new life in North America.
