Designing Worlds DW 250 – With Ebbe Altberg
This episode marks the 250th edition of Designing Worlds (and its predecessor Meta Makeover). From its beginnings as a makeover show like those that were popular on RL TV back around 2008 when the series started, Designing Worlds has now developed into the hit weekly TV show on design and designers in virtual worlds as we know it today.
For our 250th edition we decided to aim high… and we arranged an interview with Ebbe Altberg, aka Ebbe Linden, CEO of Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life – who are also working now on a second generation world. We had plenty of time, with over 90 minutes of material, to ask about various aspects of SL and its future, and of course we had some questions about the "next generation" product. We hope you'll find the interview as fascinating as we did, and we thank Ebbe for being so pleased to engage with us – and with SL residents in general.
