Popular Talks by David Siegel

What is the Metaverse?

David shows that the Metaverse will be much more than goggles and gaming. While Web3 is more of a buzzword, the Metaverse is the future of the Internet.

Platforms vs People

This talk, based on the two above presentations, goes deeper into platforms and “the social dilemma.” David shows that platforms tend to be winner-take-all markets and that they are generally bad for innovation and society. In this talk, David looks at Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Amazon, and other large platforms, showing the pros and cons and helping people understand that there is another way.
