Philip Rosedale finished up at the Lab last week, as far as “day-to-day” management is concerned. His day-to-day stuff is now back in the usual Love Machine locale. However, something stinks about this whole deal.

You see, what’s bugging me about this is that just a few weeks ago, Philip said had no plans to quit the position of CEO. The impression he gave was that he was going to be interim CEO for a long time to come. Philip was full of promises for the future, and even the shortest of short-terms was at least three quarters.

There’s talk that Linden Lab interim CEO Philip Rosedale – who recently said he would be the big chair until everything was settled and the Lab had gotten itself to where it wanted to be – is no longer showing up for work, and back loving the Love Machine.

That, of course, would be an indication that the Lab had been being somewhat dishonest with its communications, so it’s pretty easy to discount, especially as it involved no uptick in corroborative chatter among the folks that Linden Lab staff usually leak information to, and for about an hour, I ignored it.

However, as it turns out, it looks like it is the real deal.

Last week, I asked you to assess Linden Lab’s performance on its promises for its first three months since Philip returned as company CEO and asked us to judge the Lab by actions, not words.

While I personally find the time-frame a bit on the short side to be looking at very concrete results, Linden Lab helped out shortly thereafter by producing a list of the sort of stuff you were supposed to have noticed. I’m willing to attribute that to coincidence rather than insecurity, though the timing seems to be a bit of a stretch.
