I came across this book last summer, definitely worth a look and is under-rated
It’s called “Becoming Monday” and is written by G.W. Constable
Man’s got experience in entrepreneurship and virtual worlds according to his bio:
G.W. Constable has spent over a quarter-century in software startups as a product leader and entrepreneur, building many Internet marketplaces and, in the mid-2000s, virtual worlds and virtual economies.
Anyway the book chronicles a self-aware AI realising he is becoming a super computer.
What’s interesting though is the author’s vision of how the metaverse plays out. For G.W. Constable, the metaverse becomes a super highway for commerce that exists outside the nation state and ultimately crushes it. Some experts that jumped out at me:
The VNET is the author’s name for the metaverse
The book is not only about the metaverse, nevertheless it has some fascinating perspectives on it.
At $3 on kindle, it is definitely worth flicking through to glean some insights on the world we are slowly entering…
