When one of the top Fortune 500 companies changes it’s name [story from c|net] people notice. However, owning the name “Metaverse” doesn’t mean you’ll own the space.

Fran Rabuck will discuss what the “Metaverse” is, the major players, industry impact, technology components, Next-gen user interfaces, virtual currency models, and more. We’ll also explore a few selective Metaverse worlds and tools to get YOU IN the virtual worlds. Of course, we’ll also discuss the position of current and future Apple devices and services. Get ready and fasten your seatbelts — it’s going to be a bumpy — and fun session.

The meeting will be held online through Zoom — members should check their e-mail for instructions on how to connect and attend. We hope you can join us.

A limited number of non-member audience “seats” at our Zoom meeting are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you wish to attend, please e-mail pres@pmug-nj.org, and include your full name to receive an invitation with connection information.
