Michael Linden Departs Linden Lab

Oh my, what now LL? And how are the moles to survive without a bossmole?

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

As explained below, long-time Lab employee (over 13 years with the company) and head of the Linden Department of Public Works – the Moles – Michael Linden, has departed the Lab. I didn’t know Michael that well, having only chatted on a couple of occasions, so I invited Marianne McCann, someone who has known him for a long time, to write a piece about him and his impact on Second Life.

Over the weekend of February 11th and 12th 2017, it was noted that Michael Linden’s profile was not showing up in Second Life search, nor was he showing as a member in several groups within his profile. Many began to question if he had left Linden Lab, and – given he was known as the head of the Linden Department of Public Works – if the LDPW was being shuttered.

  1. I do hope for all of us that LL will keep supporting the moles, cause they did a tremendous job over the Years and they are, for granted, the ones that understand more about users needs regarding mainland, sim crossings and all related to transportation by other means then teleport.
    If i was trump, i could start a conspiration theory about how Ebbe wants to make SL users forget about all that does not involve teleport and single sims for Sansar.

    • As far as I know Ebbe – and that isn’t much apart from some rather stupid statements in interviews and speeches – you might be onto something here, ZZ. Ebbe is really seriously dead set on Sansar and VR and will do everything to convince/force the SL residents to join his new … not-a-world-but-a- collection-of-independent-experiences. Well, he can try, I won’t go! 300$ for a VR headset that will mess with my hairstyle? Only so I can enjoy a place where I don’t even wanna be in the first place???
      Fuk dat!
      My last two new desktop computers did cost 300$ combined. And they are of much more and of real use for me.

  2. Vr is for now a no go, all knows that, so Sansar can not bet only on that.
    Despite all reassurances we know what they are worth nowadays.
    If Sansar will appeal to both fashionistas and cybersex users, no matter how we will feel lost without continents and sims connected making big areas that Sansar will never be able to cover (4×4 or even 16×16 sl regions are nothing compared to sansara, alone.) we will loose SL for sure.
