You can’t have missed Linden Lab’s recent announcement regarding the Community Partnership Programme, which will bring to each and every community in Second Life® the kind of “special agreement” that Linden Lab signed with the United Sailing Sims nine months ago.
Back then, Linden Lab promised to do a similar thing for further communities that wanted the same arrangement. It took them a long time of “beta testing”, but now they’re basically extending the agreement to every community that wishes to be part of this special relationship between Linden Lab and a group of deeply-engaged residents.
The interesting aspect of the announcement, however, is its timing. But the details are also intriguing, even though not very surprising.
