Attention Second Life residents, mesh makers and risk takers. Philip Rosedale has left the building.
In a terse and non-Philip-esque post "Changing My Role, and Searching for a New CEO", Rosedale confirms the rumor that erupted today around the Second Life universe.
After about four months as interim CEO, working closely with Bob Komin, the management team, and the board, we've decided we are ready to start the search for a new CEO. I'll be leaving day-to-day management of the company and continuing in my role on the board, including helping in the search to find a great CEO. I will also be continuing my work with my new company, LoveMachine. Bob will lead Linden Lab while we conduct the search. It's been an intense few months of transition, and we all feel like we are in a better place now, with a clearer sense of direction and more focus, and are ready to bring someone new into the mix as a leader.
We have revolving doors on our building. Facility engineers tell us that the more people that use them, the more money we save.
