Ah, the irony! Rhonda Huntress said that, and she also said:

Pep sells out!

You may have noticed that the Second Life account of Pserendipity Daniels is no longer available to the public; this is - unfortunately or otherwise - concomitant with an offer I could not refuse which would allow me to "put my money where my mouth is" as my Dad might have said, except that he's pushing 90, has never touched a keyboard in his life, and refuses to turn his hearing aid on except to listen to the sports commentators, all the better to berate their ignorance. And you wondered where I might have got my attitude?

So, for the time being, Pep is going to have to back out of all and any Linden Lab net properties; his retirement is, of course, reversible, but certainly not for a "probationary" period, which just happens to end soon after the soccer World Cup.[Editor's note: You're over-using commas; keep it simple, stupid!]

I hope this ends the speculation. Contrary to the rumours - which I, in fact started - my "demise" has not been caused by the deleted feed post in which I might have implied that Lee Senderov's disemployment as VP Marketing was a consequence of her ineffectualness, exacerbated - how dare she! - by her reprioritisation from promoting SL to transferring her reptile-brain focus from rat-like dogs to new human beings who look like Winston Churchill on a bad day. Good luck with the diaper changing is what I say; I am sure that the Shopular free samples she will be getting from her new (presumably part-time, working from home) position will come in useful, if the begging on the baby registry didn't work out. The settlement in lieu of litigation will also have bought a few baby bootees.

If I had an agreement, part of which would involve the denial that an agreement existed, it would probably recognise that it would be an unfair restraint to prevent activity outside Linden Lab properties, so Pep will live on, but only here on his blog. Anybody that you might think could be Pep in other non-LL 'net properties is not Pep, however good their English and acerbic their tone. {Editor's note: And however many commas they use.]

Pep (Has also been asked to confirm that neither @EbbeLinden nor @Pep_Linden are official LL Twitter accounts)

PS This is a much more amusing visual commentary on the situation:


  1. I guess Senderov was not much at juggling career and motherdom. Thankfully, the baby is ok. No offers from Cirque then.

    Enjoy the football, see you, after the final, or finale,.

  2. I see Lyndon Johnson and I think of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nR_myjOr0OU
