"I have no idea why it's magic but it is!" says former Linden Lab CEO Rod Humble about the company's core product - the vast digital sandbox known as Second Life which has recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.

With over 1 million active monthly users and annual user-to-user transactions of over 600 million US$ in virtual goods and services Second Life has outlived many prestigious game titles and once relevant social networks in a highly competitive market.

In this special episode of the Drax Files Mr. Humble theorizes on the secret to SL's longevity, marvels at the beauty of community driven markets and ponders the empowering properties of avatar-based interaction.
