This just in …

Virtual world Second Life’s chief technology officer … has resigned. Cory Ondrejka… quit Tuesday and will depart at the end of the year.

Philip Rosedale, CEO of the eight-year-old company, said Ondrejka resigned to “pursue new professional challenges” and said he and Ondrejka had strategic differences.
