On Friday 7th August 2020 Philip Rosedale the founder of Second Life talked with Strawberry Linden about the early origins of Second Life and Linden Lab for almost for a hour. Over 200 viewers watched the live stream on YouTube (with 142 likes) and there was a really good active chat going on during the episode.
Philip talked about hanging out at the new Linden Homes continent, the virus pandemic, the rig, the status of High Fidelity, his Second Life avatar, a little about the Linden Lab acquisition (saying it’s a good thing) and much more.
Ebbe Altberg and other Lindens watched the live stream yesterday among familiar faces that I knew. I personally thought it was a wonderful interview with great stories throughout. I liked Philip’s vision and dreams he had back in the early days (late 1990s+) for Second Life/Linden Lab. I’m glad Second Life survived the last 17 years and it’s made a positive difference for so many people around the world.
Thanks so much Philip Rosedale!
Here is the full episode in case you missed it yesterday morning (SLT).
Hopefully Philip Rosedale will be back on Lab Gab in the near future. It was most fascinating from start to finish.
