Email from Rod Humble

On 23rd December 2010, I decided to find and write a friendly welcoming email to Rod Humble saying congrats to him on becoming the next CEO of Linden Lab. I have never done his before and decided that i’m not losing out on anything by doing so. After commenting and seeing more than 288 comments on BK Linden blog post about Linden Lab’s New CEO.

I sent the email and recieved a response by Rod Humble saying the following:

I really didn’t think I would get any response but it was nice to receive one. I wish Rod Humble all the best for the new year!!!!
