John Carmack leaves Meta
Mic drop on the way out leaves questions over what Meta plans to do with VR
John Carmack of id Software fame has revealed with a post on Facebook, his frustrations with Meta and the way in which they are handling the Metaverse and VR in general.
Enough complaining. I wearied of the fight and have my own startup to run, but the fight is still winnable! VR can bring value to most of the people in the world, and no company is better positioned to do it than Meta. Maybe it actually is possible to get there by just plowing ahead with current practices, but there is plenty of room for improvement.
What this means for the Metaverse is currently unclear. John's thoughts echo what really goes on inside a corporation as big as Meta and the layers upon layers on crap people have to go through to make something work.
