First Virtual Life© is Mine!

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on October 4, 2009

I hope you do not mind, but I will copyright this phrase to keep it out of the clutches of the Old Virtual World.

First Virtual Life© is now the exclusive property of Ethos Erlanger.

I hope we can all agree that this is important stuff.

Enjoy your Virtual Life© (I Said It First)

Look for my Virtual Building Blog

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on October 3, 2009

I expect Linden Lab to ask me to change my blog address because it had an “S” and an “L” in front of the word “builder”.

So, here I am starting a new blog that will use none of those two letters if it can be avoided. Look for Ethos Erlanger’s Virtual Building Blog.

We may not be able to use VW to refer to Virtual Worlds either. I expect to hear from Volkswagen about that one too.

I am hereby coining the words “First Virtual World” and the letters FVW to be used as my own, with exclusive rights. In otherwords, I have just copyrighted these two terms. You may see me use it liberally (or not. As I choose.) I intend it to mean the preferred place to be when I am in my full virtual glory. This may not be in “their” virtual region, or it might be, but it may become a generic term for the place I choose at the time.  Almost like the term “Home”. Gee, I wish I had copyrighted that word. It has a warm ring to it.

Now. On to other world!

Enjoy your Virtual Life.

I have changed my Blog Title

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on October 3, 2009

Seeing how Linden Lab has requested a highly respected website (See:  to change their name because of their use of the copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise not-to-be-used-by-anyone-for-any-reason word, two-word-phrase, or image, I am taking a preemptive step to forestall the wrath of the almighty.

I never meant any infringement.

I actually like Second Life.

I just think that now is the time to begin thinking of them as less than the premier virtual world and stating this in my blog. If I happen to raise their ire… well, so be it.

It is simply beginning to look like they have a sour attitude towards their own customers.  Some of their actions are driving a wedge between them and their clients that send them real currency every month to pay the electric bills and salaries of their employees.

Give me your thoughts please.
