So many of the Lindens have left Linden Lab that almost none of the original employees are left. Q Linden had his last day on Friday, March 4, 2011. Q Linden was a team leader for Viewer 2 Project SnowStorm team.
Q Linden started at Linden Lab in July of 2007. It is sad to see yet another well known member of the community leave.
Hopefully the Viewer 2 Evolution Group will find a way to continue on with out him.
