[Squeakland] Lack of documentation frustrating

Hi all,

The French Wiki is a valuable source of information, and effectively 
using Translate from google I have been able to use this resource for 
understanding things on animation or multiagent simulation (Kedama). I 
have seen another wiki doc with spanish documentation at small-land (but 
seems fairly unmaintained) and we're trying to create a Colombian 
spanish squeakers community using a wiki. You can see our efforts at:


It's a page about all the pages on Squeak in a bigger wiki 
(documentation, personal pages, blog post, etc.).

One of the bad things in the traditional educative structures is that 
students never become part of a bigger community, so they just made 
things inside the classroom, for not any other purposes that making the 
homework. I have found that making them part of a community can give a 
lot of sense to the learning process and, at the same time, can solve 
many of the documentation problems, because the squeaker community is a 
friendly one, and almost always ask soon about the questions not solved 
in the docs.
