    First reaction? Good choice. SL needs to think of itself as a gaming platform to make progress in its technology battles.

    the lindeX did not crash today, it actually improved. it tends to do strange things when announcements on this scale are made.

      Just imagine back when it was less controlled than it is these days. Something like this could make it plummet or jump a dollar per L$1k at worst.

    mho … it is wonderful news !!!

    It means they are in and staying in and invested to continue to command it.. A Brilliant Game Strategy and Wise Business Move !

    ((It is like they are saying :” Dudes to the new sims and grids .. bring it” ))

    has to be better than mark kingdom, he’s worked on Everquest (the first MMO I ever played) back in the day, so he already should know a litle something about virtual worlds.

    personally I been saying SL is a game and they need to stop pretending it’s not if they want to get anywhere with it, sure most people just shop/danceclub/sex on it, but it’s not much different from a more interactive version of The Sims, wich noone has ever said is not a game, nd now we have one of their former head people in charge.

     

    on the other hand, I don’t tend to get my hopes up , or point to it as the ‘worst thing ever’ until I see what he does first

    Rumour has it he’s already inworld with an AV he made himself. As opposed to his predicessor who had someone make one for him and even then only after he’d been in the job a few months.

    First step seems positive.

    fortunatly, if you find yourself suddenly walled in, you can TP out, unlike countless poor sim-people that lost their lives

    I’m hoping that this heralds good things. I really enjoy SL, but have recently started getting a bit bored with it because I am not really interested in the usual cycle of shop/danceclub/sex. (Yes, I know that there is more to it than that, but you can really only have adventures when there are other people around with whom to adventure.)

    I felt rather Betrayed by mr M Linden, i felt ignored and abandoned and still do. This new CEO has alot to fix in SL and the community of long time residents. But are we in Linden Labs to do list, or are us Oldbies just not really that important when next to the need for Newbs. 

    I await with interest to see what the new CEO brings to the lab and to our SL experience, but im not holding my breathe, i might kill myself… becos of holding my breathe that is!
