The metaverse concept has been articulated and predicted in books starting with Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, and as CGI has advanced is has been visualized in movies such as Ready Player One, based on the book of the same name by Austin author Ernest Cline.

For the special discussion event in May, as part of Austin Forum's "Metaverse May" theme, they will show the movie Ready Player One and follow it with Q&A with real metaverse experts. Afterwards, there will be a post-event networking in the Violet Crown lounge area to talk more about the metaverse and what it means for their entertainment, work, collaboration, education, and more.

This event requires purchasing a ticket for attendance to the movie at this link, but the Austin Forum will treat to a round of drinks in the post-networking.
