I'm Salahzar Stenvaag from Italy.
I am dedicated to various volunteer activities in SL including Mentors, didactical teaching in Italian and English (see ALI - Accademia delle Land Italiane, correct and effective usage of OpenSim http://opensimita.org, and currently contributors of patches to OpenSim itself. Very active organizing 2 weekly Italian events in Italian. Active in Coach Mentoring and also creator of extensions to XyText and Xyzzy lsl opensource software. Recently founded a group sloodle.it for the diffusion of the usage of sloodle in Italian community and actively helping International Sloodle Community in producing educational tools.
My goal is to help other avatars in using SecondLife in better and creative ways, especially using it for team meetings, conferences, discussions, idea exchange.
Specially interested in noprofit and volunteer organizations who want to use SL as a complementary platform for their activities.
I speak English and Italian and can help people in scripting in LSL.
