Wagner James Au Biography

Wagner James Au is the author of "Making a Metaverse That Matters" (Wiley, 2023), based on his 20 years working in the metaverse industry, starting as the first journalist officially embedded inside the virtual world of Second Life. His blog New World Notes, launched in 2006, is the longest-running and most-cited news site devoted to Metaverse news and culture. A frequent speaker and media commentator, his recent themes include:

  • Cutting through common metaverse myths -- and focusing on powerful real world use cases across many industries.
  • How the Metaverse compares with spatial computing -- and how Apple's Vision Pro will help bridge both technologies.
  • A starting guide for businesses and organizations interested in seeking true value and ROI from leading metaverse platforms.

He has spoken about the Metaverse, virtual worlds, and related topics at South by Southwest, the Milken Institute, Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, and at conferences across Europe and Asia.

James is also author of "The Making of Second Life" (HarperCollins, 2008) and "Game Design Secrets" (Wiley, 2012). and his writing about virtual worlds has been featured in The Atlantic, the Wall Street Journal, and Wired, among many other publications.
