Virtual Museums, Inc. Complies with Cease and Desist Order

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on December 12, 2010

The purpose of this post is to say that we did everything we could to meet the demands set forth in the Cease and Desist Order that came to Virtual Museums, Inc.

Our museum in Second Life that had previously featured exclusively the work of the greatest architect of the 20th century is gone.  In its place is currently a winter scene that is inviting to ice skaters and anyone who wished some tranquility.  We will have a dance or two between now and January 1st.  In the mean time, we will be meeting to brainstorm and set a new course for the coming year.  Great architecture is not exclusive to one man, even though he thought so.  We will find ways to educate people from around the world about other greats.  Then we will let the visitors decide for themselves.  We may find a young student who will become the next Starchitect.  In this newest of visual mediums, the scene may be set to discover and showcase the works of young (or old) architects who need their ideas exposed to a global audience.  Maybe a dead architect was not the way to go for us.

Enjoy your Second Life,

EE
