00:01 — This episode is sponsored by Community Summit North America, which will take place October 10-13 in Orlando, Florida.
00:44 — Kieron discusses the recent World Metaverse Conference in Beijing, designed to celebrate the companies underpinning what the Metaverse will become.
01:13 — The conference maintained a strict focus on China’s efforts with a minimal foreign presence. A government spokesperson stated that China’s Metaverse industry must become “independent and controllable,” words that typically run against the decentralized global vision for what the Metaverse should become.
01:40 — China also aims to develop interoperability standards governing how Metaverse platforms share information.
02:23 — Kieron stresses the importance of independent organizations working outside of the government to develop a shared set of universal standards. Governments are likely incapable of Metaverse development without an alternative agenda, contrary to the goals of the global Metaverse.
