Why Zuckerberg Wants Us All in the ‘Metaverse’
For all its success, Facebook doesn’t have vertical distribution or much presence in the world of work
The greatest impediments to changes in our traditional roles seem to lie not in the visible world of conscious intent, but in the murky realm of the unconscious mind.
