Ebbe Altberg Joins Linden Lab as CEO

My first thought was, wow an ALT is now running Linden Lab. Certainly can't be much worse than Mister Invisible himself, Rod Humble. From the Linden Blog post:
Most recently prior to joining Linden Lab, Altberg was COO of BranchOut. Prior to that, he was part of the executive team at Yahoo!, most recently as SVP of Media Products. His more than 25 years of experience managing teams that create world-class products and services also includes leadership roles at Ingenio (acquired by at&t Interactive) and Microsoft. 
“We remain committed to world-changing innovation from Linden Lab,” said Jed Smith of the company’s Board of Directors. “We’re keenly focused on providing incredible experiences for all of our customers, and Ebbe is the perfect person to help lead our team as we continue to serve and grow our global audience of active users."
So what does this mean? Who the hell knows? Linden Lab has been such an exercise in musical chairs lately that any direction other random will be a change.

I think we should have a contest for Ebbe Altberg's Linden name. We can start with:

  • Yahoo Linden
  • Ebil Linden
  • NotRodvik Linden
  • Alt Linden
