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.”
