Debating The Metaverse At Forrester’s Technology & Innovation Event
Over the past year, Forrester has diligently covered the state of the metaverse and what it means for marketing, technology, and other business executives. On Thursday, September 29 at 11:15 a.m. CDT, we will debate the future of the internet (the metaverse, NFTs, and Web3) at Forrester’s Technology & Innovation event. I’ll be joined by Jam3’s Rachel Noonan and VMLY&R’s Brian Yamada in a point-versus-counterpoint session with real-time audience voting.
Here’s a teaser of just one of six topics we’ll debate.
The Metaverse Will Revolutionize Every Aspect Of Our Society
- POINT (Rachel Noonan): “I disagree […] We’re far too early, and we’re also at a stage right now where there’s a lot of technology fatigue, which could also result in the future of the metaverse being a fraction of our worlds. It will have an impact, but it’s too soon to say whether it’s going to affect every part of society.”
- COUNTERPOINT (Brian Yamada): “The metaverse will absolutely impact every aspect of society […] We’ll have digital twins that will keep us healthier, content digital twins that will keep us informed […] and keep us connected. The metaverse will be this blend of our physical and digital worlds and […] the potential to revolutionize everything is immense.”
