RIP you will be missed!!!

I'm so sorry to hear this news, and his family is in my thoughts. He was an incredible CEO for Linden Lab. When making our documentary about disability in Second Life he was incredibly generous with his time and insights—one of many cases where I was able to interact with him. His warmth and brilliance were amazing. -Tom Boellstorff

So sad. Nothing but the best for his family. Send them our well wishes, Hamlet.
I will think on him for a bit.

My condolences to his family, friends, and everyone at Linden Labs. I hope his legacy inspires many people, for years to come.

What a guy.

I do not think it is an overstatement to say that Altberg was Linden Lab's best CEO and SecondLife's best "leader' since its creator. As I read this news about his ongoing battle with illness, I keep thinking to myself, "He was this sick and he could have easily been doing ANYTHING else but he chose to stick around and put up with us lunatics." We are so lucky he did and we should all be eternally grateful.

Ebbe certainly did a lot to repair bridges between users and Linden Lab, and he did it with a sort of paternalistic view of the virtual world. Clearly, it meant A LOT to him. We were very lucky to have him lead us and he will be impossible to replace and truly missed. Let's all send our most positive thoughts to his family and his friends.

This eternal noob will miss him. He sort of understood us. In all the good ways

Ebbe will be deeply be missed. A big loss for Second Life :(

Jane Teeague-Urbach

As far as I'm concerned, he saved Second Life. He understood that it was the shared creativity...of creating a world together that is the essence of SL and fostered education, creativity and upenness. I feel like I knew him even though I didn't really. I know I'll miss him, as will SL.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of this amazing "game" for all this time, I never had the opportunity to meet you in-game or in person. Rest in peace and thanks again.

Just learned this. My condolences to his family and co-workers. Ebbe took over a platform having difficulty, and his leadership kept SL going now, two decades on.

That is an amazing accomplishment in today's market for online experiences.
