I have never been impressed by Gartner but I must admit they are changing. A couple of years ago I realized they started to use scenario planning as a tool for understanding and communicating the analysis. Then a couple of weeks ago I came across a decent discussion about Digital Natives. And now through Future Scanner I found a post on the blog singularityu.org reviewing Gartner Analyst Adam Sander when he talks on a Gartner Conference among other things about the metaverse in connection to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (which I played with and turned upside down some time ago in this blog).
The idea seems to be that virtual worlds is the way to achieve self-actualization which is so much harder in the real world. A really interesting thought!

well, either adam sarner did that, or he read my article on my blog:
Thanks for commenting on that! Yes, I can see that you are making the same point… It could well be that he read your post.
