    Philip Rosedale biography

    Innovation speaker Philip Rosedale is the creator of FreeVue, a cutting-edge Internet video conferencing product later bought by RealNetworks. A year after acquiring FreeVue, RealNetwork appointed Rosedale as its CTO and Vice President.

    Rosedale started Linden Lab in 1999 after he left RealNetworks. That is where he oversaw the development of a virtual civilization known as Second Life. Ultimately, Second Life became an open-ended virtual world. 

    In 2010, he co-founded LoveMachine. The company serves as a research and development center for numerous new ideas on commerce, computing, and intelligence. As a result, Worklist, a worldwide community of web developers, was born. Thanks to this experience, Rosedale created Coffee and Power, a website that allowed people to offer small jobs and services through the use of a free market system and distributed work concepts. In 2013, the Coffee & Power team rebranded as High Fidelity. The company then developed a new virtual reality platform for emerging VR headsets. As of the beginning of 2022, it has shifted its focus to spatial audio technology.

    Speaker Philip Rosedale specializes in the metaverse. During his keynotes, he discusses the concept of the metaverse, a virtual shared space that is created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space. He also covers the potential impact and implications for society, culture, and the economy. Additionally, Rosedale discusses his experiences and insights as the founder of Second Life, one of the earliest and most successful examples of a metaverse platform, and the role of virtual worlds in the evolution of the internet and digital media. He provides audiences insights on the technical and design challenges involved in creating and maintaining a metaverse, and the potential applications and uses of the technology in a variety of industries and sectors.

    In 2022, Rosedale went back to Second Life with the aim to grow the business.
