Second Life Hires New VP to Help SL Residents Get A Real Life

Second Life, today announced the appointment of a Vice President of Web Development. New in the role is Robin Ducot, previously at Adobe Systems where she held a post with the same title. The hire falls syncs squarely with Linden's expressed goal of "extending the value of Second Life beyond the virtual world and helping Residents more closely integrate Second Life with their daily lives." To that end, the company points to the recent acquisition of Xstreet SL which added an ecommerce component to the virtual world and the launch of AvaLine, a service that lets SL residents receive cell, landline or VoIP calls inworld from people outside Second Life.
