Scratch & Script: LSL Accessible to the Masses (or even me maybe) in Second Life

MIT has launched a seriously cool little application that converts all that gobbly gook code stuff that people spend so much time on (unlike prims, say, which serve a nobler purpose) and make it accessible to, well, to me anyways.

Scratch 4 Second Life allows you to construct programs using graphical boxes to “snap” coding blocks together.

Worth a try. If nothing else, it might help prep you for some serious openSim work - kind of like an object-oriented coding lesson of sorts. And for those of us used to prims, the idea of moving little boxes around is more intuitive than finding that pipe character on the keyboard.
