VB doesn’t cover all firm openings in virtual worlds (there are dozens in Second Life alone now, according to the invaluable Galileo Law Directory) but this one caught my eye because the Elchoness firm seems to have a better understanding of what might work in a virtual world than some.
Beyond just hanging a shingle, Dave Elchoness (as Second Life avatar ‘Da Etchegaray’) has started a group in Second Life “dedicated to the enhancement of the workplace, human resources, and employment issues through the use of virtual worlds such as Second Life,” and is encouraging “all residents interested exploring how virtual worlds can improve the workplace” to join.
The group’s name is “Second Life Workplace,” and if you want to visit the Elchoness offices, you can find them at Silicon Island (193, 91, 38).
