Going between systems is more valuable if you can move your stuff, too. If you can pack up and move, the landlords of VR worlds can't get too uppity.

Are you serious when you're suggesting to readers of this post that we should be content with "a few clicks and several minutes of wait time" for hopping between destinations in the "worlds-wide meta-metaverse"... rather than striving for the simplicity (and instant transportation) of links between websites? Just checking.

Had hoped we had seen the last of the tech evangelists. As for the 'why do we need links' angle - erm it was designed in from the start. That was the point.
And nod to Animats - though some decided a while back to make sure the bits that in some way define 'us' are (totally revised to where possible or even if it makes sense) portable. Why yes I do have a minecraft av :)

I'm said technologist above. I would like to point out some inaccuracies in the post.

In the original Tweet, the link pointing to the "manifesto" was from the m3 group; m3 is the group trying to find a common standard between their worlds.

Also, Cornell is not a publisher, but a pre-print server for preliminary results. The actual publication will be published by ACM in the fall of 2021.

As for the final question, I will take that on Twitter.

The Metaverse is a dream of a desusional few. The rest of us will just be happy opening 2 programs simultaniously. I can be in two places at once without people even knowing I am the ssame user behind both avatars... where exactley is the benefit in loosing that freedom?

No, I suspect we'll get to several seconds within the decade, even on Steam, that's a solvable problem. But not the clicks. Metaverse or not, we'll probably always need to go through some opt-in steps before going from one experience/IP realm to the next.

VRChat requires you opt-in to visiting any world it has not greenlit - so the idea of going from one experinces to about her without clicks is a pipe dream. Even websites warn you when you are about to leave.
