The pilot is leaving.

Cory Ondrejka aka Cory Linden, one of the longest running employees of Lindenlab and its chief technician (CTO) is leaving. Why? The reasons remain mysterious. Some speculate that he had different visions for the future of SL than Philip Rosedale has. What does this mean for LL? Well, many think that the company is in for a tough ride now and it's going to be very hard to fill the gap Cory Ondrejka leaves, since he's one of the few people who can still understand the big picture as it seems. So - we're going to see.

Our Lindens, who art in the Labs,
Hallowed be thy prims.
Thy Grid-dom come, thy will be done,
On sims, as it is in the preview,
Give us this day our daily crash,
And forgive us our spammery.
As we forgive those, who grief against us
Deliver us from the n00bie ones.
And lead us not into nakie places.

Amen.

Age verification is finally going operational. First it's going to be on a grid wide beta on the main grid, the impact of it is something to be checked out.

It's unusual that a beta feature is going to be released on the main grid, but in that case it makes sense. I just wonder what took them over 7 months to get that feature ready; it's something that's going to make Second Life more corporate friendly in the future, that's for sure.
