SL5B Closure: Annual Prizes and disruptive technology

Today saw the closing address by Linden Lab’s board Chairman, Mitch Kapor.

Dusan Writer has an excellent write up but the take home messages for me were:

1. The announcement of an annual ten thousand dollar prize for achievement in Second life. Judges will be drawn from a wide range of sources including Second Life residents. Here’s hoping that 10K is US dollars, not Linden Dollars.

2. That Linden Lab not surprisingly remain fixed to the idea of Second Life as a disruptive technology platform being utilised by virtual world pioneers with particular succes sin education and health. Nothing earth shattering there and Linden Lab can hardly argue they have a well established platform with mainstream appeal – imagine the questions around profitability then.
