When a company provides a sky, land, water, and avatar framework and then tells the users, “Okay, there it is, now you guys build it,” that defines “The Metaverse.” That’s real life. We got sky, land, water, and a food source, and humans took it from there. That’s our real-life metaverse.

Upper and lower case arguments are possibly as old as time itself:

Stop trying to give Metaverse a distinct meaning. You're no more right than anyone else. It's a buzzword.

Better to let this one go and talk about actually interesting things surrounding virtual worlds and VR, than argue about semantics of a dead word.

I have always referred to Second Life as 'metaverse' knowing full well there are other metaverse want-a-be's. Even when I was a publisher in SL and coined my readers as 'metaversians' - right or wrong, trivial or not, it is only with recent real-world application for the new digital NFTs and currency craze that we question, whether our virtual world [SL], is, in fact a 'metaverse'. I declare "WE ARE METAVERSE PRIME!" giggles and goes back to checking her bitcoin :( *sighs*

Thank you! I've been trying to explain this to people as well. Personally, I believe a true "Metaverse" will be decentralized in the same way that the Internet is decentralized. Right now, it's more of a hodgepodge of specific technologies.
