Yesterday, Gene Yoon (AKA Ginsu), Linden Lab's vice-president of Corporate Development surprised us somewhat by announcing his impending departure from the Lab. Yoon is considered one of the last of the "old guard" among Linden Lab executives.
Admittedly, this is something that we should have seen coming, perhaps. Over the last few months Corporate and Business Development and Marketing has changed direction and been almost completely refit with new personnel.
It makes perfect sense that Yoon would look into moving on to other opportunities at this juncture.
