big week in virtual worlds: a new fearless leader has emerged at linden lab, he is of swedish roots & as a natural consequence has an awesome name: ebbe altberg.
so: on the show today we speculate about digital leadership and hear from a retired linden with historical perspective.
we have a feature interview with a successful sl entrepreneur who started as a 13-year-old on the teen grid.
and we are talking with pioneer educator barry joseph about what sl did right with young folks and what minecraft et al are doing [possibly a lot] better today.
