Why Is Rezology Attacking Ebbe Altberg?

Ebbe Altberg, the CEO of Linden Lab (the makers of Second Life and Sansar) does not have an easy job. Steering any company means that you have to make decisions that the customers may not like. As I have written before, no matter what he does, he can’t win.

It would appear that Rezology (which I also have blogged about before) has some sort of bone to pick with Ebbe, replacing their regular store banner in the SL Marketplace with this bizarre image:

Now, you can disagree with a decision that a CEO makes, but comparing him to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, with a picture of starving North Korean children? That’s harsh.

A clue lies in this Rezology product listing for a “North Korean nuclear weapons official logo”:

It would appear that someone has their knickers in a twist over the Sansar project. Yet another Second Life person complaining that Sansar is taking away company resources that should be spent on SL, I figure. (That would explain the starving children reference.)

Bizarre! I wonder what action Linden Lab will take (they’ll probably take down the offending item from the SL Marketplace).
