8:57am on Monday, 13th September, 2021:



I was interviewed about the Metaverse last week for the BBC news channel, and duly appeared on BBC Click over the weekend (https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000zr54/click-short-edition-11092021 if you have a TV Licence). The interview lasted 30 minutes, but only a couple of short snatches we used, which is the norm for this kind of thing.

Pretty well any opinion about the Metaverse could have been extracted from what I said during the interview, but the BBC chose ones that make reasonable sense (rather than the tail end of a rant), so I come across as fairly sane. This may be because one of the two clips that feature me was basically my paraphrasing of something I'd read recently that Raph Koster wrote on the topic (https://www.raphkoster.com/2021/09/02/online-world-or-metaverse/), so was more lucid than my usual ramblings.

My voice is going downhill, though, and I have a chalazion gracing my eyelid at the moment that really showed up. Still, old, decrepit men have more authority than old, fit men, so overall it probably contributed to an appearance of gravitas.
