Today is Ebbe Linden’s 1st rez day and what a year it has been.
He opened up the Linden Lab doors to let the Lindens back out into the world and opened up the windows for us to look inside the “Lab” a bit more.
I still think they should wear white coats and have a few flasks, bunsen burners and glass pipes filled with bubbling goo before they can call it a lab.
He himself has been running around Second Life quite a bit and has generally made a good impression amongst Second Life residents but also in the RL media.
He has been very active but in some ways he is still a bit of a noob…
His avatar isn’t that interesting, it doesn’t show all the things possible with avatars these days, I’m not sure he’s changed his hair or even clothes in months!
Then again… neither have I.
Yes, I know, its his birthday, I could send him a nice, oh I don’t know, 1920s suit or something… but I’m Dutch and we cloggies don’t like spending money.
We got a nice mesh freebie waiting for him in Berlin though.
And his profile?
Well Ebbe, it is still a bit empty, you really should fill it up with groups (like 1920s Berlin of course), favourites, semi philosophical quotes and poetry to appear intelligent, some naughty picture, something vague yet funny about your real life, a rude or witty quote from some chat you had ages ago and of course a disclaimer about people sharing chat outside SL even though its not in the ToS.
Anyway, congratulations Herr Linden, lets hope the next year is going to be as interesting and fun as the first year!

Hippo Rezday Ebbe!
One year into his new job as CEO of Linden Lab, and his profile is glaring proof that he barely uses Second Life.
Second Life is Linden Lab’s main source of (declining) income.

All it proves is that he hasn’t put much work into his profile .
I know he has an island, that he uses one or more alts and that his son is a regular user.
I’ve met him in person inworld more often than any of the previous CEO’s.
So I think he uses SL more than ‘barely’.

I agree, Ebbe is a breath of fresh air when considering the leaders we’ve had in my 10 years. Cory would use Second Life and roll up his sleeves and help/teach us the skills needed. That would lead to some self-deprecating humour at times. He would explain a piece of LSL that was broken, study it a bit then exclaim what idiot wrote this… followed by an Oops “I did” !
