A few weeks ago I wrote a speculative piece suggesting that Linden Lab’s next move would be to implement the highly functional Clearspace Community collaboration tool.
I believe this is precisely what happened. We all have seen the big splash of the new Second Life blogs, but one telling clue is embedded within the URL of the new site:
I was not able to find an announcement regarding the technology used by Linden Lab, but yes, as you can see, they are indeed using Clearspace as the engine behind the new community blogs. A good thing? Yes, I think so, as Jive software’s Clearspace products are among the leading commercial tools for establishing and developing a vibrant online community. Good choice, LL!
