On Tuesday 23rd June, Patch Linden and Dee Linden was interviewed by Saffia Widdershins at the SL12B Auditorium on the past, present and the future of Second Life. The full interview is now available to watch again.
The hour is packed full of discussion on Second Life, Project Sansar, Linden Lab projects, mainland Second Life and much more.
At 1pm SLT today Pete Linden and Xiola Linden will be interviewed. Should be most interesting. 🙂

I’m sorry, maybe I came with the wrong expectations, but I was disappointed by this interview (and the interviewer). This was more or less social smalltalk – I was hoping for concrete information and maybe even some hard questions. What I got from it was, how great everyone and everything is. The 2 or 3 questions from the audience that actually were forwarded were about how to quickly undress and where to find Linden Bears.
We had Dee Linden as Land Product Specialist – without hearing much about exactly that product. Decoration, beautification, nice and shiny, sure. But the pressing question about the massive loss in grid size (since the highest time in 2008 the grid shrank by 20 percent, private regions by 30 percent, with today an average weekly loss of 20-25 regions)? Patch talking about SL being stable, actually using the word “grow” sounded quite off, looking at these numbers. Mainland in many areas is simply wasteland. What about the demand for a fairer priced land product portfolio with more alternatives (for example a “half” region)?
As I said, maybe I came with the wrong expectations to the wrong place at the wrong time. I guess a birthday celebration wasn’t the best spot for hoping for such information. But sadly LL isn’t that great in communication with their paying customers. But *that* already is a tradition all by itself…
