EDIT – Prokofy Neva has pointed out to me that Kent Quirk no longer works for Linden Lab and the information in this post regarding that information is therefore inaccurate, but I won’t ninja edit the post!
Gamasutra brings us news that Kent Quirk will be part of a working group that will help to promote academia and business opportunities for the Massachushetts Digital Games Inistitute. According to Gamasutra Kent Quirk will be joined on the working group by Vivox Inc. Co founder Monty Sharma and Sanrio Digitals VP of Publishing and business, Robert Ferrari. Vivox of course are the guys responsible for voice services in Second Life.
The Institute will teach students about game development and also create intellectual property that can be licensed to help bring in revenue.
Wait wait wait! Who the heck is Kent Quirk? He’s Linden Lab’s director of Software Engineering.
