Is Philip Rosedale Returning as CEO of Linden Labs?
Is Philip Rosedale, the original visionaary of Second Life, returning as CEO of Linden Labs after a two-year absence?
It sure looks that way if you read New World Notes today Mark Klingdon abruptly cancelled his speech at the Second Life 7th anniversary celebrations and was replaced by Phil Rosedale.
This is a very welcome move if indeed it it true. Linden Labs needs to get back to its roots and take care of what made Second Life great to begin with -- a place where some very creative people can get together and have fun at the same time. The company has not grown since Phil left two years ago, and its about time that Linden Labs returned to the original dynamics that attracted us here in the first place.
