Yes He Is!
New world notes has confirmed that Linden Lab CEO Mark Kingdon will be stepping down, to be replaced by Second Life visionary and founder Philip Rosedale, who will serve as Interim CEO. In addition to his present responsibilities and CFO, Bob Comin will assume the role of COO.
I can only think Second Lifers will assume a collective sigh of relief, for Mark Kingdon was taking this world in strange and I believe fundamentally lethal directions.
I don't think Philip is a magic fix. Second Life is apt to continue to struggle both financially and technically, and there's a huge amount of mistrust and antipathy from residents-- but I'm thrilled by this change.
