Winelands: Monthly speaker evening - Jo Eyre

Into the metaverse:
What it is, when it’ll be here, and why you need to know

The nascent metaverse – the next evolution of the internet – is already transforming parts of our digital lives. Like the internet before it, the metaverse will involve the creation of countless new businesses, altered economies, and ways of connecting and working.

In the next decade, technology will accelerate at an exponential rate and our physical and digital lives will converge even further.

What do we have to look forward to? What should we fear? How can we prepare? Do we all need to start wearing VR headsets all day?!

On Thursday 17 February our virtual guest speaker, Jo Eyre, will take us on a whistle-stop tour of the metaverse as it stands today, and what it means for us.

Jo is a consultant to Epic Games (makers of Fortnite and Unreal Engine); an independent metaverse communications advisor; and a PhD Candidate, focused on creative workplace collaboration in virtual reality. She is fascinated by how emerging technology is changing the way we communicate with each other, with brands and within our workplaces.   She is based in Cape Town and is a member of Mensa South Africa.

Our speaker evening will be held via an interactive Zoom webinar, and all current members of Mensa South Africa are invited to participate.
