Philip Rosedale and Mark Kingdon (i.e. Philip and M Linden) of Linden Lab gave a friendly breakfast talk for Day Two of the Second Life Community Convention in Tampa, Florida. Philip is of course always good on the stump, speaking fancifully about the potential for Second Life for distance meetings, international cultural exchange and even space exploration. Mark was more grounded, speaking about Linden Lab’s priorities for the coming year, including improving stability, creating a better new user experience, opening up the grid, and supporting the business and educational activities in SL better.
It was almost embarassing that Global Kids got two shout-outs from the podium this morning, Mark talking about how he gets “choked up” every time he thins about his experience visiting our office! I’m proud of our work, and its great seeing it recognized by the higher ups at Linden Lab.
Here are some pics from their talk that follow…
Several SLCC participants, like my friend Coughran Mayo in the foreground, were in-world while they were watching Philip and Mark in real life. So geeky!
More of my pics from SLCC and SLECcc are available here.
