In our most recent episode of Designing Worlds, we sat down for a chat with Patch and Brett Linden, about recent happenings in and future plans for Second Life. And we covered a wide range of topics – with some interesting side trips!

Brett Linden is VP of Marketing for Linden Lab and Patch Linden is Vice President of Product Operations for Linden Lab. We had a wide ranging discussion that covered the Uplift to the Cloud, now largely completed, and – now that new land is once again an option – the forthcoming Linden Homes release of Stilt Homes.

We also discussed the impact of the pandemic on Second Life and how the Lab has handled the significant influx of new and returning residents as the virtual environment has become increasingly important, including the availability of “turnkey” educational and conference environments that users can adapt and configure from a range of available designs.
