Experts from The Economist newspaper have predicted that 2023 will be “the year of the Metaverse”. But as more people establish themselves in the virtual world, big questions are beginning to arise. For example…
...should people in the metaverse be held to the same standards as in the real world? For example, if they behave badly or if they do something good? What examples can you think of?
...what rules should there be? For example, should people have more freedom online than they do in the real world?
...and most importantly, who should have the power to decide the answer to these questions? The creators of the metaverse? Governments? The general public? Or someone else?
