I am falling off of my new Italian seat here. On the verge of returning to SL (some tech difficulty in my laptop holds me back) I discover that Iridium is gone, Chad is gone and Cory is gone?
Oy gevalt... I wonder what's lft of the world I knew just three months ago when I do step back in.


Typical Philip double speak and a wee bit of softball questioning. If Cory leaving was an "Internal LL matter" and thats why they didn't tell the user base then why did they give an interview to the BBC. Makes NO sense. You really should have caught that and followed up with Philip.

As usual, we get no real answers from him....

Why should we? I've never seen a company run differently.


Yeah, if your tech guy leaves, and the guy spouting a lot of BS about 'our internal organizational strategy has been to create highly skilled generalists with overlapping responsibilities' is the one still there, it doesn't really bode well. It's probably easy to replace the individual slapping together the corporate politically correct slop (a bit of Googling and most anybody could repurpose old press releases), but dealing with the thorny tech problems is maybe not so 'overlappable'.

It's kabuki. The real story is not going to emerge "through a Linden PR rep".
