LL has a new Open Source Director.

by on May.19, 2010, under Uncategorized

Scott Lawrence just joined Linden Lab and has become Oz Linden. A aptly
chosen name that alludes to the wizard behind the curtain and Open
Source in general. Scott will be the new Director of Open Development,
taking over from Rob Lanphier who has left LL a couple of months ago.

Rob
had been the Open Source ‘busybody
for about three years at LL before moving on. He has was greatly
appreciated and during his absence it became clear that a dedicated open
source person was being missed. It took some time for LL to find the
right person to fill his shoes.

For the last ~7 years Scott has
been been leading the Open Source sipXecs SIP
PBX project
. His new role at the Lab will be as he puts it: “to
expand and improve the open source viewer program”.

Besides being
the Director of Open Development, he will also be heading up the
Applied Engineering team with the “mission of making our sustaining
activities for the viewer even more responsive to the needs of our
Residents”.

Hopefully Oz Linden will be able to fill the Lab and
the open source community with renewed energy to work on great new
features and improvements in collaboration with each other.

If
you have a facebook account you can see him here scooting around on his motorized
