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.
