Attending to a Long-Delayed Project: An Updated Comparison Chart of Popular Social VR Platforms, Plus an Updated Metaverse List/Index

Yes, I am herding cats again: organizing metaverse platforms! (some context)

Starting today, I am tackling a couple of tasks which I have been putting off for far, far too long.

The first task is updating a now-dated comparison chart of popular social VR platforms, which I had originally compiled in 2019, and which Dr. Fran Babcock updated quite a bit in 2021 (Thanks, Dr. Fran!). The second and related task is updating my sprawling (and also somewhat dated) list of virtual worlds, social VR, and/or metaverse platforms! The latter also functions as a sort of index to all the blogposts I have ever written about the various platforms, and so it serves two purposes: a metaverse list, plus an index-cum-aide-memoire for this longtime blogger!

I will be taking some research days (mostly, successive Mondays) from my regular job as a university librarian to devote to these projects. It will likely take me the rest of this winter and probably well into spring to do this work. Thank you for your patience as I head out to herd cats!
