Awesome new features for the current platform?

Or awesome new platform?

They've never been coy about new features before, but a whole new world? THAT might be worth keeping under wraps.

A roadmap from the Lab would be nice. The people that pay their bills are tired of being in the dark.

They probably don't want anyone to see the banker boxes "folding storage boxes" piled up and everything being put away while the auditors value the furnishings and building.

Just kidding. I hope. But I have a bad feeling after that SL8B hollow opening keynote.

If LL's board was really smart they would shed california wages and taxes and move to Austin and restaff. And refocus on what makes people stay in SL despite their hatred of it.

What is coming soon (or should be):

- Direct link in from Facebook
- Revised revenue model (I suggest % of inworld sales)
- Resource cost to replace prim count
- web-based start viewer
- base 'get a flavour' app for mobile platforms
- a move to stabilisation rather than development as the company splits into separate technology and hosting areas
- encouragement of third-party developments to fill in gaps

hmm something major might also explain shareholder / share value turbulence.. interesting


Surprise: Second Life will be closed down at 31.12.2011 to make room for the new Linden World 2.0.

Why does Pete look like he was photoshopped in?

Graham Mills

Not photoshopped. Augmented reality layer. :)

Ener Hax

hey is the board wiped clean??? waaah, i thought that perhaps some of me lived on, but the board certainly looks blank - that's a shame =(

(who cares about residents anyway)

Erica Linden

Hey Ener - the board lives on! Don't despair. We painted the office last winter and moved stuff around. It is now hanging on the wall in the Game Cave next to the Velvet Elvis.
