MAY 7, 2010 Expelled: Woodbury's Second Life Silencing
Most recently, the brick-and-mortar university Woodbury was booted off Second Life —thousands of students were affected—by the virtual world's moderators, a company called Linden Lab. Linden Lab has remained largely silent in the press, a silence that has infuriated many. Tags: Linden Labs Second Life Openness Woodbury University Tim Handorf Griefers

JUNE 24, 2010 Second Life CEO Resigns, Founder Back in Charge
Event This just in: Linden Labs, the creator of the 3D virtual world Second Life has announced that company founder Philip Rosedale has been named interim CEO and that Mark Kingdon is stepping down as CEO. This comes just a short time after Linden Labs announced a layoff of 30 percent of its staff. This is part of the natural churn within any tech industry and because Linden Labs and Second Life is the biggest player in the space, events like this get a lot of press. think that I can be a great help and a strong leader in that process.

JUNE 10, 2010 Interesting Developments in 3D Learning and Collaboration Space
First, it looks as though Linden Labs, the developers behind Second Life, may be downsizing their corporate efforts ( Second Life Enterprise Edition ). Two sources indicate that Linden may actually be shutting down their Enterprise operations. The story seems to have broken in a number of places, Virtual Worlds News reports that Linden Lab Lays Off 30 Perfect Of Staff. Additionally, sources inside the industry indicate that Linden seems to be more focused on its customer-focused 3D environment than its business-to-business efforts. This can't be making IBM happy.

SUBQUARK How I became a zombie or my opinion of Reaction Grid’s CEO
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2009
To be fair to Linden
Lab, their focus has been in creating a social networking site. And, in accordance to the Gartner Hype Cycle , many businesses enjoyed great press
2 years ago when Second Life seemed to be the answer and the next dot com boom. But that was not Linden
Lab’s fault. They did, however, enjoy some positive press
and that is worth something (similar story for the Bellagio in Second Life). Reaction Grid continues to come on strong and is emerging as the leader in hosted virtual world solutions. This is a key distinction. Very good. MORE >>
SUBQUARK #facebookfail says boo to Ener Hax
| SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 2010
Labs is looking to connect Facebook to Second Life. As my rockstar, Ener Hax has capitalized on this Facebook issue and turned it into positive press
and deeper web reach (I am slightly biased, as you can tell). particularly loved your tweets to M Linden
last week asking him to have the courtesy to address you. Quite a stir in the twittersphere on yesterday’s news of Ener Hax’s account being disabled by Facebook. You may know that I am partial to Ener, after all, we are partners in virtual world endeavors. Is the line blurring with identity? MORE >>
LEARNING IN A SANDBOX Towards “the real feeling of presence”
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2008
Labs just recently issued a press
release in which they anounce the Immersive Workspaces initiative. think this is the first really innovative attempt of Linden
Labs to get more into the corporate use of Second Life. Many organizations today are having employees working remotely. This may be working from a home office or perhaps they are based at a client’s office. In my case i’m currently working from home as i’m recovering from an accident and not being able to travel. One example is using tools like Twitter to keep connected. Project Wonderland. MORE >>

, about our collaborative research programme (with Susan Toth-Cohen , of Thomas Jefferson University, USA) in Second Life. complete list is available of all the educational institutions (SIM Teach) currently operating in Second Life - SL won't get overcrowded though, because Linden
Labs will simply build more islands, Dubai style! There is also a Big Quiz open for anyone to take. You can find it on YouTube , but it's easier to get it here. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's. MORE >>
