Ebbe Altberg Memorial in Bellisseria

Yesterday, I found out that the Moles created a memorial for the late LL CEO Ebbe Altberg. It is located in the middle of a small, fir-covered islet in the Altberg region in Bellisseria. You can teleport directly there or, if you’re starting your journey from any of the nearby regions, you can moor your boat by the islet’s small cove and follow the stepped path to the small plateau where the memorial has been erected.

No landing point has been set, so, at the end of this post, I’m giving you a landmark that takes you to the base of the stepped path. Once there, you see a bench made from tree logs, facing a large bronze statue of Ebbe’s Second Life avatar. The statue itself is placed on a small plaza made from boulders in the shape of the Second Life logo, and more specifically where the eye would be, and has a waterfall on one side behind it. Flowers are scattered on the plinth, which is surrounded by candles.

At the bottom of the plinth, a plaque, slanted upwards, reads:

Ebbe Altberg

1964 – 2021

Always in our hearts

Above the plaque, an open book has been sculpted on the plinth; on the left-hand page, there is Ebbe’s RL likeness, while on the page on the right one can read Patch Linden’s announcement of Ebbe’s passing.

It’s a touching, thoughtful move on behalf of the Lab’s personnel, which shows how much they valued Ebbe and recognised him as a true leader and a valued colleague and friend.
