In this article for UploadVR I talk to Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg about the latest developments in their Sansar platform. He talks about how they are already enabling a first batch of creators to make their own virtual worlds and setting up the systems that will allow them to monetize those creations once it’s released to the general public later this year. He also offers some interesting insight into how Second Life – one of the oldest virtual world platforms around – inspired Sansar:

“We learned some positives but also a lot of ‘that’s not how you do it’ from Second Life, so we’re having a much more user-centric approach from the beginning, and trying to make sure we stay away from the territory of complete geekdom.”
