could we build a vr semantic garden on google earth ?

You can build structures going into space with Google Earth (GE), however they are a bitch to navigate.  This relates to being able to use GE as a platform for virtual reality a la Second Life where nobody initially owns the realistate.  Imagine that the actual world started out with one entity owning all of the land.

Note, i have no problem with VR having an economy ... in fact i like it ... i just want an even playing field.

I was just using these tools at the top of GE and changing the altitude to absolute.
I had forgotten about sketchup ... perhaps i should try that too ... but i have a sneeking suspicion that the problem is not in the building facility but rather in the ease of navigation.  GE is really squed to navigating the sufface of a globe ... and the only surface that is available is the Earth. Anyway thanks for the reminder ... i had missed it.

Well stupid me ... so this just means that we should build our vr community on unoccupied territory on the surface of the globe ... say in the middle of the Atlantic for the land of the Warhammer.

I really thank to one who wrote this article. I have always been reading and writing texts like this in blogs. Also, I, as a daily writer, present my respects to everyone. I just watched videos like this in research in all areas.
I think people must first research before writing.
