This is going to piss people off. I took a road trip a few weeks ago to New York and listened to an interview with Mark Zuckerberg where he discussed the Metaverse and Meta’s plans for it. The whole time I was thinking… this is complete bullshit. I feel that in the tech world there is so much bullshit out there, that I really needed to write a post about it and share my views on the subject.
My criteria for bullshit tech are:
- Over hyped in relationship to actual usefulness
- Over hyped in terms of current state of technology and unlikely to realize the vision in a reasonable amount of time.
- Unlikely to provide any real value in the near term
- A gigantic waste of time and money
These are listed in no particular order…
