British native Rod Humble is possibly America’s most honest CEO: “I have no idea why it’s magic but it is!” he says about his company’s core product – the vast digital sandbox known as Second Life! 

This sprawling virtual universe, solely created by its users, administered by Linden Lab from their San Francisco headquarters and simulated in server farms all over the world, is turning 10 years old this June and with over 1 million active monthly users it has outlived many prestigious game titles in the highly competitive market of digital entertainment. 

What is Second Life’s secret? Mr. Humble tries to get to the bottom of what makes open-ended creative platforms superior to other digital offerings, how community driven markets  that are not constrained by geographic boundaries work and ponders the power of avatar-based interaction in this special Drax Files/World Makers episode.
