Pete Linden Leaves Linden Lab After 9 Years


Pete Linden leaves Linden Lab after 9 years – 2016

Breaking News

According to Inara Pey & New World Notes it looks like Pete Linden (Peter Gray  known in real life) has decided to depart Linden Lab after nine years. Peter Gray was Linden Lab’s Senior Director of Global Communications. Pete will be moving on to a new role with the communications team at Facebook AI Research. Pete is going to be missed by all members of the press in Second Life, the wider Second Life community and the lab most importantly.

Pete Linden has served under four Second Life CEOs including Philip Rosedale, Mark Kingdon, Rod Humble and currently Ebbe Altberg. Pete Linden has made special appearances over the years at well-known Second Life events including VWBPE annual conferences, the Second Life birthday celebrations and taking questions from audiences at the Meet the Linden interviews which have all been hugely successful. Pete was involved with Blocksworld and Sansar in recent years too.

The big question now is who is going to replace Peter Gray to deal with Linden Lab communications ?

I wish him all the very best in his new role at Facebook and I would like to say thanks to him for the past nine years.

Pete Linden and Ebbe Linden – 2014

Pete Linden & Rodvik Linden – 2011

Good luck Peter 🙂

Second Life Grid Statistics – September 2017 Update


Historical Daily Concurrency Since December 2009

These are latest Second Life Grid Statistics for September 2017 from the Second Life Grid Survey run by Tyche Shepherd.

The Second Life Grid Survey is by far the best source for daily Second Life grid statistics to check out. You can check out the latest region database numbers, useful economic metrics and much more.

I pointed out in my last Second Life Grid Statistics made back in early July 2017 that the grid saw a tiny amount of region growth from Private Estates during the first half of 2017. However the total amount of Main Grid regions has been dropping throughout 2017.

Since July 2017 Private Estates and even Linden Owned regions have declined down hill. Personally I don’t think the launch of Sansar Creator Beta effected the grid numbers or had any sort of big impact that some were guessing was going to happen.

Sansar Open Beta opening “next week anyway” according to Oz Linden at TPV Meeting


Sansar Breaking News

At a recent Third Party Viewer meeting at 17 minutes / 12 seconds Oz Linden via voice chat in public said that Sansar Open Beta opening starts on Monday. He then quickly changed that seconds later by saying “next week anyway” which is rather interesting.

Oz Linden said that Second Life is not going away – not even a little bit. Yay! 🙂

If this news is correct then this is very exciting news for those interested in trying out the Sansar Open Beta finally after a long wait.

Next week will be most interesting to see if Sansar Open Beta will finally launch or if it gets delayed further into August or September. We will have to wait and see.

More updates soon..
