"Philip is one of the most inspiring people I have met. The accomplishment of imagining, and then creating, Second Life is a feat without peers in the virtual space. Philip was instrumental in guiding me at the Lab when I took on the challenge of building our customer relations team; the time he spent with me to offer inspiration, support and guidance was incredibly generous. I still follow his example of courage and tenacity in my daily work. Philip is a visionary leader whose dedication to Second Life and Linden Lab are without measure." - Winter, Owner, WinterSky Art

"What makes Philip unique is his rare combination of long-range vision and ground-level execution. Very few people could have envisioned a project of the scope and complexity of Second Life; far fewer could have the conviction, bravery and street-fighting doggedness to see it to fruition. Philip's world-class in every sense but he's also a very good guy with a wonderful heart." - Reuben
