Philip Rosedale is the founder and CEO of Linden Lab, producer of the acclaimed 3D digital world Second Life. Rosedale has an extensive background in the development and pioneering of streaming technology, having built his first computer in 4th grade, and started his first computer software company while still in high school. In 1995 he developed FreeVue, a low-bitrate video conferencing system for Internet-connected PCs, resulting in the acquisition of his company in early 1996 by RealNetworks. For three and a half years, Rosedale served as Vice President and CTO at RealNetworks, where he was responsible for the development and launch of RealVideo, RealSystem 5.0, and RealSystem G2. In 1999, Rosedale returned to San Francisco, joined Accel Partners as an entrepreneur-in-residence, and began the basic research that would become the technology behind Linden Lab. Rosedale holds a B.S. degree in Physics from the University of California at San Diego.
