Hello I am a geeky scripter who is also very involved in the art community in SL. I got involved when I created what I'm best known for, my Morphing Sculpture, nearly 3 years ago. I've fallen in love with the art community and feel that what is happening with art in SL is important and I want to do everything I can to help connect the many art galleries and artists with the residents. So I have been maintaining a list of art galleries for about the same amount of time (see http://sasun.info/artgalleriesofsl.aspx for more info). There are over 650 art galleries registered on my list and still growing.

The fancy kiosk system that I developed to distribute the list (along with a gallery tour HUD that I created) was turned into a commercial product and is very popular with magazine publishers to distribute copies of their magazines. I call it Kiosk.Net and it's a great way to distribute freebies or info. It's scalable and dependable, and connects to a web-based database so owners of the system can maintain their kiosk network on the web.

I love scripting, it's about the only thing I can do well, and I'm perfectly happy having one area of expertise and hire other experts to do the rest :) Right now I'm spending a lot of time integrating SL scripted objects with asp.net/SQL server based web pages/databases and learning that there is a lot of potential in creating products that talk to web services and databases. So that's quickly becoming my area of specialty.

I own a sim called Amicitia which is mostly residential with a small shop area. It's a very laid-back relaxed beach island sim and has been my home sweet home for a long time now.

My first retail store (SasTech) opened up January 2009 on the Vertigo sim where I sell some other gadgets and toys I've created. Come by and visit some time!
