(Variety)  Former Veoh CEO and Myspace Music CTO Dmitry Shapiro has left Google to work on his San Diego based new startup GoMeta–that may be related to virtual or augmented reality. GoMeta doesn’t have a website yet, but aims to make the world “more magical,” according to a recent Facebook post by Shapiro, who also said that it is “building a metaverse” — a term commonly associated with virtual worlds like Second Life.
“The future will be augmented,” Shapiro said via email to Variety when asked about his new company, and continued rather cryptically: “The Metaverse is a democracy. I’m with Her.”
