Grafika Identeco

KriZe's picture

At our national conference in St. Louis last May, I was charged by the Estraro with the task of creating a new logotype for Esperanto-USA. In setting forth about that task, I had several design concepts that I shared with the board. I pointed out two things about logotypes, in the first place, people tend to be drawn toward more rounded forms, rather than pointy, prickly forms, and in the second place, some colors (green and red) draw a less favorable reaction than others (blue, orange and yellow).

Open Thread: How Did You First Hear About Esperanto?

Tim Westover's picture

In connection with our current poll, I'd like to propose this open thread: "How did you first hear about Esperanto?" When and where? Did you start to learn Esperanto soon thereafter, or was that first encounter just a seed that was planted?

Nek kokino nek ovo

limako's picture

Dum kelkaj jaroj, mi vojaĝas al la insulo "St. Croix" dum kelkaj semajnoj de la somero. Mi tie faras sciencajn esplorojn kun kolego de apuda kolegio. Mi jam esploris kelkfoje, sed sukcesis trovi nenian spuron de Esperanto-agado tie. Kion fari? Plaĉus min organizi Esperantan kurson tie, sed mi havas nenian ideon kiel komenci tion. Mi restas tie nur dum du semajnoj, do mankas tempon organizi ion kiam mi alvenos, sed mi ne scias kiel organizi ion antaŭ ol mi iros. Ĉu iu havas ideon kiel komenciĝi kiam estas nek kokino nek ovo?

USEJ - Agadoj, kaj Petoj

Follow new USEJ developments at our Google Groups mailing list!

USEJ now has its own Facebook Page, a Group at the E-o social network Esperantujo, and soon will have a twitter account ("usej" was taken -- any suggestions?). I highly recommend staying in contact with them, particularly the Facebook Page. The Esperantujo site is still in its infancy but has a lot of potential, and a chat feature!

En la Lando de Inventitaj Lingvoj

limako's picture

Mi recenzas la libron lastatempan de Arika Okrent En la Lando de Inventitaj Lingvoj. Ĝi estas interesa kaj leginda libro por ĉiuj, kiuj interesiĝas pri lingvoj, sed speciale por Esperanto-parolantoj. La aŭtoro decidis esplori artefaritajn lingvojn en 2004, eklernis Esperanton, venis al la landa kongreso en Bostono, kaj partoprenis la Esperanto-movadon dum kelkaj jaroj. La libro detale pritraktas ŝian sperton en Esperantujo; kontrastas tion kun ŝiaj spertoj kun "Klingon", "Lojban", kaj aliaj lingvoj; kaj intermetas eseojn pri la historio de artefaritaj lingvoj. Legu plu por la tuta recenzo.

Esperanto on "How Stuff Works"

Tim Westover's picture

"Stuff You Should Know", produced by the great website, is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. Recently, Esperanto was featured on their podcast "Three Innovations We Need Right Now" (teleportation, a universal language, and a second Einstein).

Here's the link to listen to the podcast:

Site Update

Note! The Esperanto-USA website has just undergone a big update and it will take us a while to get everything put back into place. You can still visit the old site. In particular, there were a couple of posts people made that didn't make the move yet.

Please let us know if you like the update and the new theme (or if you hate it). Or if there are things we can do to improve things. It may take a few days, but hopefully we'll get things sorted out.

Tom Ecchardt's Esperanto Activity Featured

In The Jewish Week, Tom Eccardt's Esperanto activity is featured in an article called Dr. One-Who-Hopes:

On Wednesday evenings, Tom Eccardt pulls his bike up to the curb at Park Avenue and 21st Street, takes off his helmet and enters a small deli called Emma’s Dilemma. Inside, he peels off his jacket like Clark Kent, exposing a bright green T-shirt emblazoned with one word, one mission: ESPERANTO.
