The Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Expo has added current Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg as a conference speaker, SVVR organizer Karl Krantz just told me. (And unless I miss my guess, this will be Altberg's very first public appearance as Linden's CEO.) Appropriately enough, he's joining Linden Lab's founding CEO Philip Rosedale on a panel called "Creating the VR Metaverse".
I will probably be attending SVVR myself, and if you're reading New World Notes, you can get a $100 discount to attend too: Just use the code "NWN2014" when signing up.
By the way, Karl also sent over a good mini-essay on the importance of connecting the SL userbase with what's going on in virtual reality -- not in spite of Facebook's involvement in VR, but because of it. Will post that soon.
