Greetings from the UEA

filipo's picture

This morning I received personal greetings from Renato Corsetti, president of UEA, the World Esperanto Association. It was a very kind, positive, and favorable email in which he profusely thanked us for the work we are doing here in the USA and for the progress we are making.

He is often in discussions with others about how important it is to the worldwide Esperanto movement that we have a strong movement in the USA. So the challenge is before us that we grow in membership, in strength, in language ability, and most certainly in international friendship.

It is difficult to overemphasize our importance, because what we do here in the USA has worldwide effect.

La LR festo allogis la intereson de Libera Folio. Kalle Kniivilä, la redaktoro, invitis min verki artikolon kiu nun aperas cxe la retejo: Usonaj esperantistoj liberigis sian retejon. Gxi ne estas la titolo kiun mi elektis, sed suficxe tauxgas. Kaj la redaktado sxajnigas ke mi bone skribas Esperante! Trafo!!

Mi alvenis hejme post tuta tago de vojgxado kaj, post forta trinko, dormis bone. El esperantujon, en mian cxiutagan vivon. Ve...

English or Esperanto?

filipo's picture

The question might arise as to which language should be used for this website - Esperanto or English.

There are arguments for and against using Engish and using Esperanto. There are pros and cons either way. However, one of our main pushes is to inform and attract non-Esperanto speakers. That means primarily English speakers for the United States. Yes, Engish, that other "international" language.

We are trying to foster new members in new local groups. We are trying to help the beginner, even the absolute beginner.

There are numerous opportunities to participate at an all-Esperanto level. That can happen easily enough at conversational gatherings, meetings, and congresses.

"Libera Folio" publishes an article about this website

The Esperanto electronic gazette, Libera Folio has an article written by Dr. Steven Brewer about this website.

The LAN Party Built the Website

Robert L. Read's picture

All weekend, 7 to 10 people worked in a nest of computers in my basement to complete this website. Steven Brewer calculated it was maybe 140 hours of labor. Steve did some real programming, like making the dynamic photos on the sites. The rest of us mostly wrote or transferred from the old site about 100 pages of content. Often the HTML was fairly problematic. I think it was a great success.

It demonstrates some principles of organization for a workshop like this it has taken me some tries to learn:

1) You need to have done all the preparatory work. Steven and I did this, and it insured that nobody was idly waiting on us during the work period.

LR Festo finigxas

limako's picture

Refoje restas nur d-ro Read kaj mi. Ni kalkulas ke dum iom pli ol du tagoj, la LR Festo kontribuis almenaux 140 horojn da laboro je la retpagxaro. Kiam mi konsentis anigxi la estraron de ELNA, mi kredis ke la retpagxaro estis la plej grava problemo kiun ELNA havis. Tio ne plu estas la plej grava problemo. Ankoraux estas multaj farindaj aferoj je gxi, sed ni komencas pensi kion ni devas fari estontece. Estas tre bona sento ke ni sukcesas, post pli ol jaro da laboro, la retpagxaro estas preta. Mi dankas cxiujn kiuj helpis: Phil (ambaux el ili), nehundo, kvarko, ailanto, d-ro Meyers, Tracy, Stephanie, gxeremio, kaj la aliajn mi ne memoras.
