Quick update on last names. Just fyi the team here has been working on solutions for this and it is taking longer than we thought. identity is important so we want the ability to have that wonderful shared experience the old last name system had but also not lose sight of the fact that many people really do not want a name given to them, they want freedom to define their identity, finally we want to consider adding meaningful things like titles etc that can be awarded by the community or some other methods. Anyway bit more complicated than initially thought but progress is being made. Will have a baked plan sometime in February we think.
Hamlet couldn't think of another recent peep from Rodvik, saying he had "a month long absence from social media." He also noted that the Linden blogs were quiet in the month of January. He did get the impression from "insiders" that there should be some important news soon.
