Linden Lab Announces New CEO

Breaking News!

On Wednesday, LL named Ebbe Altberg as its new CEO.

my Tweet from Wednesday:
“Linden Lab announces new policy: No more alts, only altbergs.”

Meanwhile, Ziki Questi tweeted to Ebbe Altberg that his avatar name should be:

Alt Linden.

He didn’t get it but Ziki is absolutely correct!

UPDATE: Thursday, Feb. 6…

Inara Pey has added a profile of Ebbe Altberg on her blog. She calls it “A Short Profile” but it is the most extensive article on his background I have seen thus far.

    Yeah… I contemplated revising the title to “a short profile (in long form)”, but opted to keep it as it is :). There was a lot more I could have added, but did want to keep things digestible. Ta for the links, as always!
