Linden Labs CTO departs

Cory Ondrejka, chief technology officer of Second Life creators Linden Labs, has quit the company according to a New York Times report.

Ondrejka, a former Navy officer, was allegedly the chief proponent of users being able to retain the rights to their in-world creations, which forms the basis for the Second Life economy.

Linden Labs CEO Philip Rosedale has said that Ondrejka is to leave to work on new professional challenges. “The needs of our company are changing, and the role of CTO, or technical lead, has also evolved,” said Rosedale.

”Cory and I are in agreement that our paths, at this point in time at least, lie in different directions.”
