Thanks for this article and timeline, Max.

Let the record show that the audience for Max Read reports hold a consensus view that the Metaverse is in fact, undeniably funny - especially in context to the reported $10.19 billion in net losses in 2021 alone. Further investigation into the reported losses on Meta-related investments and specific details on 'how the fuck somebody spends $10 billion dollars' would be an excellent addendum to the report, if at all possible.
