    1. here are questions that remain unanswered. For example, what will be the librarian’s role in acquiring, cataloging, and making 3D assets and other objects findable and usable for their patrons in the metaverse? Will libraries create digital twins of their physical buildings and offer ways for their patrons to access those spaces like they would their actual library? How will utility patents work inside the metaverse? If, for instance, someone creates a lamp and gets it patented, will that patent be the same inside the metaverse, or will the creator need to request another? Will society see an automated copyright enforcement system in the metaverse like YouTube and other content systems have? If so, how will it work?

      Some questions to think about.

    2. It has been noted that people tend to be more focused and productive while working inside VR because they are isolated within a virtual boundary and cannot easily be tempted to check their emails and do other work, as can happen when using traditional videoconferencing software.

    1. Hemmes lifts lid on project APRIL 03, 2019 Pub titan Justin Hemmes’s $1.5 billion redevelopment will dominate a Sydney city block, taking up to seven years to complete, with world-class local and international architects engaging in a design competition for the proposed five-star extravaganza. In his first interview on the yet-to-be-named project, the billionaire said he planned a 52,500sq m tower opposite Wynyard Station, amalgamating his Ivy party palace and adding a substantial office component, a luxury hotel and an opulent hospitality precinct.

      Awesome news. This MUST be rolled into Crossrail/West Metro planning works.
