Adam drew comparisons to the novel Black Mirror and the sci-fi novel Snowcrash. Snowcrash is the famous sci-fi novel that came out in the late 80s. Adam mentioned it because so much of it has become true! In the story, people spend most of their times in homes or their office and wear VR headsets to visit the Metaverse. He further pointed out similarities are that the streets will mostly contain just delivery scooters and autonomous cars. Adam added that he used to own the domain name ‘metaverse.com’. ┬áHe further lamented that the streets are full of Bird bikes and scooters thanks to the brazen arrogance of Silicon Valley companies.
