I had the opportunity today to listen to a feature on CBC radio while I was travelling. I believe the program is a weekly show called "The Cost of Living". The report anticipated that the Metaverse will have a larger impact on the global economy than the internet. It suggested that many of us will spend 8-16 hrs a day in the metaverse. Similar to the inception of the internet in the 90s we didn't really know the outcome of adoption but did expect it to change our world going forward. They interviewed two 12 year olds for their take on the metaverse. The two found it completely normal to have a a persona IRL as well as an avatar in which they identified as themselves where they would meet and collaborate with their peers both locally and around the world. For those that are currently familiar with Roblox and Minecraft it is easy to see how living in the metaverse will be commonplace for Gen Z who are already well on their way. Just as those that were using ICQ in the 90s were quick to adapt and be amazed by the ability to connect via video and voice globally the meta is expected to become an extension of our reality. If one thinks about how much has changed in the last 15 years (Internet of things, mass adoption of social media etc.) it's easy to see that the metaverse will have a significant change on society and as such the economy. I was unable to find the feature but will keep searching. I think companies like Facebook and Apple have enough capital to carry this through. I have always found these companies to be overvalued (look at their 10 year charts) but they continue to generate heaps of cash. I have felt the same way about other stocks in the past (RRs and held off on owning in turn missing out on great returns) but they continue to do well. Are we in a similar situation where Zuckerberg, Musk, Gates etc are the Rockefellers, Carnegies and Vanderbilts of today? I am not ready to hop on the bandwagon yet but would consider starting a position when the next correction comes. Some may say tech is approaching that territory now based on the recent downward trend but I am talking about overall market correction. I used the 2020 correction to load up on financials and currently hold next to nothing in the the tech space.
