New World Notes: Interview With Ebbe Altberg   1 comment

=====

(With thanks to Daniel Voyager)

Hamlet Au has written up an interview he’s done with Ebbe Altberg, Linden Lab’s CEO, and posted a video of the talk as well.  I’ll leave you to link to the article and read (and watch) it there, but I’ll interject:  it’s my belief we were lucky that the Lab, which was thrashing for direction five years ago, managed to get this man.  There may have been some jokes about the “IKEA CEO (some assembly required),” and I myself did a version of that:

But I think he’s been a godsend to Linden Lab and Second Life, and sounds committed to growing what’s old as well as supporting what’s new (Sansar).  Hopefully we’ll have him for some time to come.

Ebbe Altberg Town Hall Meeting Ebbe Altberg At Town Hall Meeting

Here are some of the updates that I found most interesting in simple terms during the recent town hall event with Ebbe Altberg the CEO of Linden Lab on Thursday 13th September 2018.

To see the whole video of the Town Hall session, see my previous blog post. It’s definitely worth watching. I hope there will be many more Town Hall sessions in the future with more announcements.


1. Return of Last Names

Linden Lab set a goal to return last names in Second Life in 2018. It’s now probably going to be returning either at the end of 2018 or sometime in 2019. There is no date when it will be deployed but the team are on it.

2. Animesh

It’s apparently very close to release and the Environment Enhancement Project is close to public testing very soon.

Early 2016 Launch Date for “Second Life 2”; Lab Reaffirms Commitment to Original SL

Linden Lab has announced that they plan to launch “Second Life 2” (currently code-named “Project Sansar”) in early 2016, according to the Second Life Press —

Read the article for details; but it does state in there that the Lab promises SL2 won’t be a replacement for the original platform, that their commitment to the vintage Grid remains.

Ebbe Linden visits 1920s Berlin and hints that Lindens will do more mingling

This is an excellent thing to see and hear about. I wish I hadn’t been at work today, else I might have dropped by the Project to meet our new välvillig magnat (benevolent overlord) myself. Let’s hope for more drop-ins by many more Lindens!

Earlier today (still April 1st) Ebbe Linden aka Ebbe Altberg CEO of Linden Lab, posted this mysterious message on twitter;

A very exciting message although also a little mysterious.

Has an official decision been made about Lindens are going to be inworld more often?

Snapshot_005For some time now people started noticing that Lindens were becoming a rare sight, much to everyone’s dismay.
Most of us like seeing a Linden pop in during events or just wandering around.
Last year I heard rumours about there being some sort of restrictions about Lindens being allowed ‘out in the wild’ and it would be fantastic if that has now been overturned.

Being a rather demure and subtle lady, I immediately decided to try and test Ebbe’s post;

Schnaps and stroopwafels, an offer impossible to resist!

Snapshot_029Although I didn’t really expect him to pop up in 1920s Berlin within minutes of that post!
