Business Insider Examines the End of the Metaverse

Ed Zitron, CEO of EZPR, writes the following in “RIP Metaverse” for Business Insider:

The Metaverse, the once-buzzy technology that promised to allow users to hang out awkwardly in a disorientating video-game-like world, has died after being abandoned by the business world. It was three years old. …
