Erm...

Philip Not-A-Linden-Anymore went off and sat around till the "go away" money ran out, then started up his own Vomit-Cam based system, "SL-2 Ain't No Lindens HERE!", aka Lo-Fidelity...

Nope, never been facinated by them, generally their appearance in public is at best A) a pain in the butt, all the lick-a-linden fanbois crowding around some back office accounts department non entity because "Oh LOOK! A LINDEN!", or B) a premonition of some disaster about to happen, or C) that a disaster has already happened and the Linden is there to make a half-hearted attempt to clear up the mess...

And you are missing a bunch of them, Alexa, Caleb, Gus, Grumpity, Tommy, Dakota, Tommy, Jagix, Oz, Patch, Vir, Kristen, Kyle

And then there all the defunct Lindens like M and Katt.  In other words, The Regime.

Please do not stalk the Lindens - they might all get grumpy and apply for a transfer to the Sansar team.

It can never be forgotten that some of them walk amongst us on non-Linden avatars, always keeping their Clark Kent like powers a secret even from their husbands, wives, family, Masters, pets...

It's possible to even have a Linden as a friend and never realise it!

(well I don't, but I am sure some people have secret Linden friends)

 

OMG, we forgot an awesome Linden!

Soft :D

I can helpt you with a few of those and also add some rather important ones:

Andrew Linden is not active anymore. He joined LL in 2002 as the last of "the original 12" and was CTO from 2007 until he left for High Fidelity in 2014.

Eric Linden joined in 2002 or early 2003 and is probably the most famous of the content Lindens - you can still see his works everywhere on the grid. He also made the first machinima in SL and I think he also designed the system avatar. He got stuck near the center of the fault around 2007 and has not been heard from since.

Dee Linden is still here. She's the one to talk to if you have problems with some mainland.

Magellan Linden is a fictional character. He used to have a blog where he told about his journeys discovering new continents. He's later been reused as an NPC in various games.

I don't know anything about Kenny Linden except he's the man behind what is possibly the most inaccurate prophecy a Linden has ever produced: "There's always another guy to buy the island." :P

Philip Linden founded Linden Lab in 2000 and was the CEO until ... about 2008 or 2009 I think. He returned when his successor didn't succeed and left for good in 2012.

Torley Linden is Torley Linden.

Xenon Linden was the first Content Linden and he's definitely not active anymore - he left many, many years ago. He made the Iris Temple and some really good bridges.

---

There must have been thousands of Lindens over the years (vwinsofmration.com lists 1206 but it's probably not complete) but a few of the more important ones:

Cory Linden joined LL as early as 2000 and was the CTO and main idea man until he was fired in 2007. He later became CTO of Facebook and it has been said - and not without reason - that he was the main power behind FB's success.

Avi Linden joined in 2002 and developed the prim system. He was also one of the creators of what was to become Google Maps, but that was not while he was working for LL. Last I heard about him, he was working for Amazon.

Ryan Linden was Philip's right hand man. He left to follow Phil onto new ventures.

Soft Linden is the patron Linden of all furries. He's in the Sansar team now but still has time to do a little bit of SL work every now and then.

Ebbe Linden is the boss of all things Linden Lab does these days.

Oz Linden is the sergeant major in charge of whipping a gang of wild developers into a lean and mean working team.

Dakota Linden helps people.

Tommy Linden is the forums own special Super Tommy.

And don't forget Guy Linden who deals with Mainland. I don't know when he started (and I'm not gonna look at his profile) but he's still doing it.

Then there was Jack Linden. Someone else can say something about him. He always seemed to be the bearer of bad news for us. He's no longer a Linden, of course.

Seanna Linden (or was it Seana?). She was a resident who worked for Yahoo!, and later became a Linden in charge of the search team. (Jack was the manager/overseer of the search team, as well as mainland). I think she wasn't a Linden for very long.

Wait Bub Linden is still in the company? Are you sure?

Also you can add Madori Linden -> Land Operations

Jed Linden is one of the founders too (not sure what he did but him, Philipp and Andrew have special avatar UUIDs)

A problem with listing who is no longer a Linden is that it can't really be accurate, because Lindens have changed names in the past, due to flack from residents. So someone who seems to have gone may still be there under another name.

I value my account too much.

But Jack cost me a lot of USD. So, I guess my feelings can be guessed.

We should also mention the first four Linden accounts created.

Name Joined
Phoenix Linden 1412-01-06
Doug Linden 2001-04-15
Ian Linden 2001-11-06
Iris Linden 2002-03-13

No. 5 was Philip. His account was created the day after Iris' but enough said about him already.

That's not quite right, he went on to start an Elance clone called "Coffee and Power". It wasn't exactly a spectacular success but let's be fair: he did actually try to do something.

I doubt that Phoenix Linden is still here. S/he'd be a 606 year old account, which would make the person quite old :)

606 years is no age for a phoenix.

It depends how many resurrections from the fires of death it could achieve ;)

Probably once but it may not have needed any at all. The average phoenix lives for about 500 years before it is reborn. 606 years is a long time for a single life but it is not impossible.

Who'd have thunk those monks locked away in the monestories of the Holy Roman Empire, illuminating manuscripts with hand made pigments would actually be writing the first lines of code for SL. Meticulously forming each bit and byte in Latin with equisite penmanship. Carefully drawing colourful pictures of prims and sculpties in the margins of each page.

Pity work stopped and those books were shelved so early on, because nobody expected the spanish... ok, that's just silly. Ignore me.
