One year on since the Linden Lab restructuring


Today marks one year to the day since the news surfaced about the big “strategic restructuring” of Linden Lab. 30% of Linden employees lost their jobs and many LL offices such as Brighton, Amsterdam, Singapore and Mountain View were all closed down in 2010. M Linden (Mark Kingdon) announced this news in the afternoon on 9th June 2010 called “A Restructuring For Linden Lab”.

The day I can remember very well and it was really sad to see many Linden friends depart from Second Life forever. Later in June 2010 M Linden stepped down as CEO of Linden Lab on 24th June 2010 and Philip Rosedale came back as interim CEO. On 23rd December 2010 Rod Humble became the new CEO of Linden Lab. 2011 seems to be going really well so far with lot’s of great improvements in the pipeline like mesh, windlight estate settings, new search, group chat fixes, UI changes and login screen changes.

Check out this interview by Tateru Nino who recently talked with Rod Humble about Second Life. Sound promising for the future of Second Life I think. What are your views?…
