Big Four accounting firm KPMG has committed $30 million to the metaverse in order to establish an “innovation hub” and train employees so they will be prepared to work with clients as the metaverse becomes a more common interface. Like many organizations, KPMG is citing breathtaking figures as it predicts the metaverse’s eventual value. Neville and Shel discuss KPMG’s move, various metaverse valuations, and other metaverse-related news and information in this FIR short.
The next monthly, long-form episode of FIR will drop on Monday, July 18. FIR “shorts” — episodes under 15 minutes — will appear once or twice each week.
We host a Communicators Zoom Chat each Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. For credentials needed to participate, contact Shel or Neville directly or request the credentials in our Facebook group or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to Jay Moonah for the opening and closing music.
