With Facebook renaming itself to “Meta” and pronouncing the “Metaverse” I could not help but reminiscent on our Metaverse 1 Project that we participated in as early as 2007. This was a European Project funded through the ITEA4 Framework.
A consortium of 32 organisation from 6 countries had come together to advance the workings of virtual worlds. By creating a standard interface, the METAVERSE1 project made it possible for information to be shared between different virtual worlds and the real world and has led to the development of an international standard.
We were there the first in the Metaverse!
