Michael Linden Leaves Linden Lab

The Linden Department of Public Works officially announced last week that 13 year employee of Linden Lab, Michael Linden is no longer working for Linden Lab.  Onetime head of the Linden Department of Public Works, Michael was considered the "head mole" of Secondlife.

I was and am a big fan of Michael.  I thought his vision for what the mainland of Secondlife could be had great promise.  If you've used the trains, highways airways or waterways of Secondlife then you have Michael to thank for your experience.  His departure is even more evidence that the company may not be headed in the right direction.

Linden Lab seems to be moving away from the idea of a "virtual world" to that of an instancing experience, similar to what Sansar is working on, but without Philip Rosedale's commitment to transparency.
