This is an interesting question, conceptually, isn’t it? I think what everybody wants is a comprehensive + up-to-date directory to discover projects, people, onboarding, etc. When looking around, there are several groups and individuals building such resources, but there’s always something wrong, or there’s just a bunch of them, so the task becomes to meta-integrate/-coordinate them. And hence, another directory gets created
With MetaGame’s and Metaverse’s, the data and functionality and accounts for access and name/branding/memes are specific to your particular instance/effort, which might not be considered useful or well-presented to others who have a different idea what they want to do with the data, functionality they want to offer, meming they want to meme.
Wouldn’t a meta-project maybe try to collect and offer the data in open formats, provide agnostic, universal tooling, support others in contributing entries, corrections, updates as well as enabling other groups to import/convert the data for whatever use case they have in mind, under libre-free licensing? That’s of course more difficult to set up and pull off implementation-wise, architecturally, in terms of social processes and coordination. Plus, it could indeed happen that somebody else takes off and runs with it, so it’s always easier to concentrate/center under one brand, technical programming stack, administrative control, etc. But still, Wikipedia despite it’s bad parts or OpenStreetMap or libre-free software development might suggest an example of how such an collaborative practice can be designed and set up to serve many wider peer interests/needs, as long as such are not exclusive or conflicting with others.
Just some thoughts/questions, if these are in scope and of concern for MetaGame, if these are the kind of activities the MetaGame meming is hoping to invite and encourage, or on the other hand MetaGame and Metaverse and similar projects want to carry them out on their own for themselves, which is very understandable as well.
I personally don’t have a particular strong opinion nor would mine matter, curious what’s the thinking in that regard, but also want to indicate that it would be quite difficult to do much with the data beyond the boundaries of where it is typically, currently collected.
It reads as if the Metaverse idea/proposal (maybe implemented already or is it mock-ups?) suggests to build a dashboard or app for better overview, aggregating the data from multiple sources for the user to offer convenient and efficient discovery/usage. To obtain/gather the data easily enough in a decent form, that’s potentially related to what I’ve wrote above. If the Metaverse is itself a dApp, fine, I personally haven’t wrapped my head around yet why UI and data/networking would be vertically integrated, rigidly dependent on each other in Web3 and not agnostic/separate/interchangable (also considering the reinvention of wheels), or why the entire concept of apps/applications as appliances like a toaster which can only do one thing, demand that the human has to operate it in lack of proper machine interfaces and have to be thrown away once some little thing is broken inside because you can’t open and fix them now becomes an even more dominant, even more manifested/cemented concept in the dWorlds, but hope to learn about it from you guys, not knowing if I’m either too young or too old for that, so please apologize
