Rod Humble at SLCC 2011 highlights

For the first time Rod Humble (Rodvik Linden) attended SLCC 2011 and held a keynotes address which started at around 1pm SLT on Saturday 13th August 2011 about the Future of Second Life. I thought the keynote address by Rod was very positive, interesting and that he did a great job at answering SL questions. There was at least 60 avatars in the SLCC regions this year with more than 50 attendees in the crowd in the ballroom at SLCC 2011 along with alot of viewers in the SLCC ustream chat window.

I think after the keynotes address many residents said they were impressed and happy with the announcements. There was alot of excitement and buzz on Plurk, Twitter and inworld during the keynotes speech. Always great to see!
