Most Residents and readers will recall the surprise and consternation that shot through the Second Life community on the sudden departure of CTO Cory Ondrejka from Linden Lab in December. What the long-term fallout from this situation will be, nobody yet knows, of course. But the now former Linden seems to have landed on his feet. Comes word from The Chronicle of Higher Education that Cory has been appointed a visiting professor at USC's Annenberg School for Communication. (Cory has also announced this on his own blog back on December 30, but I've read no news of it until now.) Logically enough, he'll be lecturing the grad students about online communities, and their economic/technological impact.
Best of luck, Professor!
