Basic Metaverse

David Shrier

What is the metaverse? Quite simply, it's a digital platform to help people collaborate, work and play in new ways, in an immersive 3D environment.

In Basic Metaverse, leading futurist David L. Shrier explains how the technology works, unpacks its potential uses - including its relationship to the development of Web3 - and its impact on everyday life and work.

He explores some of the legal and moral quandaries that could accompany widespread adoption of this transformational technology, from issues of wealth disparity and access to what happens if your virtual avatar commits a crime in the metaverse.

The metaverse future is full of possibility. One thing we can be certain of is that it will be stranger than we can imagine. Join Shrier as he journeys across virtual worlds in search of understanding.

David L. Shrier has published seven books regarding the impact of technology on society, and is a globally recognised expert in technology-driven innovation. He runs one private and one public company while holding an appointment with Imperial College Business School, where he is a Professor of Practice.

David advises public companies, private enterprise and more than 100 governments on creating ecosystems of new ventures in fields such as digital transformation, artificial intelligence, data analytics and financial technology, having developed more than $10 billion of growth initiatives.
