Philip Rosedale, Second Life czar (Is he still CEO? Is he now Chairman?), sets the bar REAL HIGH as he kicks off his search for a new CEO for Linden Lab:
In describing the skills he was looking for in his replacement, Rosedale said the new chief should already be a passionate user of Second Life. They also have to be “a great coach” who will work well with Linden’s staff.
“And they have to have complementary skill sets to mine,” he said. “Because I’m staying and will still be involved.”
Experience operating in a global information technology market is necessary. Rosedale pointed to Second Life’s large non-American resident population and the company’s confusion last year as it began to charge VAT to European Second Life users.
An existing user? With those skills? Why not just sell out to IBM…it would be easier, and Sam Palmisano has already been inworld…
