“The next platform in medium will be even more immersive, an embodied internet, where you are in the experience, not just looking at it.” This is how Mark Zuckerberg launched the Connect 2021 Developer Conference and with it, a hype that is currently hard to escape. But what is behind the hype and what does the metaverse mean for the internet industry?

Thomas Riedel will look at the origins of the term “metaverse” in an attempt to define it. With this foundation, we are ready to take stock. What technology is already available?

Will it be more like the “mobile walled garden” or the open Internet?
