Yes, yes, it was a prank!

Firestorm ruling the world

You should have looked at the date first before complaining that the links didn’t work! 🙂

Obviously it was another of my (in)famous April Fool’s pranks, which I try to do (almost) every year. Some years are better than others, because the best pranks are those that are 90% based on reality — which has clearly been the case.

So, no, Linden Lab hasn’t been bought by Facebook, and, as far as I know, Philip Rosedale is still the owner of High Fidelity. My apologies to Ebbe Altberg by placing words in his mouth that he has never uttered. The double picture of Mark and Ebbe side-by-side is fake; as far as I know, there is no such real picture, so I forged one (you might have noticed that the picture from Ebbe comes from his Twitter account!). I was lucky to find a real picture of Philip and Mark together, though, so that image is real, but from a completely different context. The featured image from coldLogic, a shop I adore, also has no huge prims with Facebook Likes in there (and it’s not a prim, either, just something quickly done on Photoshop). So, my apologies to all of you 🙂
