What's the point of a metaverse standards register?
Christine Perey answers why the Metaverse Standards Forum is looking into it.
Christine Perey, Metaverse Standards Register Working Group Chair, answers questions on why the Metaverse Standards Forum unveiled its register.
What is the Metaverse Standards Register?
The Register is a publicly accessible database of interoperability specifications, publications and projects related to the Metaverse, and the organizations responsible for their development and maintenance.
Why is it beneficial?
The Register will enable standardization groups and those who wish to use interoperability standards to quickly explore where best to focus their efforts to further the goal of maximizing interoperability in Metaverse products, services, and systems.
How does it compare to the activities of your competitors?
Are there any competitors? The MSF is a coordination group that seeks to actively work with any organization whose goals are to increase interoperability through community building and similar activities. The MSF Standards Register WG's goal remains the same - to create a comprehensive database that can be beneficial to everyone across the industry.
Many of these groups, including OMA3 and the Linux Foundation Associations, such as Academy Software Foundation, are already members of the Forum and are already included in the Standards Register. We are also working with the Open Metaverse Foundation, part of the Linux Foundation, who is developing much of the code necessary for the open standards. We’re also working with OMA3 in a liaison, which you can read more about in a recent blog post.
