To schedule a call, you can book me for weekly Office Hours.
If it’s quick and Kernel-related, grab me tomorrow for 15 minutes, or just call me on Telegram.
I live in Sofia, Bulgaria which is in Eastern European Time (UTC+2). I’m usually free to talk in the afternoon.
I'm Salim Virani. These days I'm a Kernel Steward, and also having fun building random stuff.
In the past, I designed peer learning programs for Oxford, UCL, Techstars, Microsoft Ventures and The Royal Academy Of Engineering. I also played a role in creating the Lean Startup methodology, and the European startup ecosystem. You can read about this here.
I’m working on a communication tool for community groups and unconferences. It focuses on autonomising focused teams rather than top-down coordination.
I’m on the Kernel Stewards team, where we help ~2,000 fellows understand the what the development of blockchains mean to humanity on anthropological scales, and how to use them altruistically and prudently.
