Aligning virtual economy design and business modelling

This is a rough working-in-proggress draft of a figure on how virtual economy design would fit into a business modelling ontology. Please forgive me the graphics quality and harsh colors, they will improve once I recreate it with a proper software :).

Figure on SlideShare.

The model is based on business model ontology developed by Osterwalder et al. (during 2002-2005), best documented in Ph.D. Thesis in 2004. Found here.

I will just leave the figure here as is for now, and later upload the whole thesis with more rigorous documentation and explanations.

The model is not supposed to depict all business related aspects, but
more preciesly the relevant aspects in revenue generation logic through
virtual economy design.

I welcome all comments and discussion.
