So, not even the metaverse is safe from recession as it's announced that There.com, one of the early prospectors in the virtual world space, is to shut down it's servers effective 9th March. So if you have an account there and want to archive your material in the form of screenshots, you'd better get on it right away because once the system goes down you'll not get access to it. Although this is the end of There.com you can bet management will be popping up in other ventures in future.



This does make you wonder about the value of your purchases as a consumer, in buying in to the virtual space what is it exactly that you get? Is it just experiential? Are consumers investing simply for the the 'fun' they have rather than any physical or quantifiable product? Interesting questions, I expect your answers on my desk by the end of the week!

There-ites looking for a new home, now that its closed doors, of familar surrounds should try IMVU or Frenzoo (or both)
