Such sad news!

Ebbe was an enthusiastic and engaging fellow. I met him in RL some years ago when he came to NYC for a tech fair. I had lunch with him, Peter Linden (who has moved on) and a few residents. I remember my main impression was that he was normal. Normal! That may seem funny, but we have had some rather eccentric leaders, who could get pretty wild, and while that is good in the early start-up stages, at some point the grown-up has to come along. His past jobs were at large, mature companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo and that seemed so reassuring for the next stage. Ebbe had a great deal of experience with companies and people and the sophisticated European manner than Americans lack. But he was low-key and nice.

It's scary to think of the Lab without a CEO or a VP of Engineering. But there are very dedicated and experienced Lindens at the helm, Patch, Grumpity, Wendi and more. I hope they will get a good person in soon. 

Thank you for sharing this, Prokofy.  I feel as though I knew him a bit through your words.  My heart goes out to all for the loss of your loved one and friend.  His essence lives on here in SL in some ways, I'm sure.
