Video Conferencing at the Stanford Esperanto Conversation Class

bildo de Dreah

With gasoline in the San Francisco Bay Area now in excess of $4/gallon, I can no longer justify driving from Pacifica to Palo Alto to participate in the class on Conversational Esperanto.

Fortunately, I was able convince other students in the class to help me out, and we have set up a conference link through Skype. If there are more than one remote students, then we have to be content with audio or we'll incur additional costs. But if I'm the only one, then we can use video conferencing.

The only drawback I have about this is that there isn't anyway to set up the computer in the classroom so that the remote user can see everybody. I had to be content with looking at Trio's reflection in the window of the room. I also had to keep telling myself that adjusting the computer on my kitchen table will not have an affect on my view of the classroom.

New Esperantist Blogger

bildo de Dreah

Mirinde, mi estis ĉe la ĝusta loko ĝustatempe, kaj gajnis laborpostenon je la kompanio, Transparent Language ( http://www.transparent.com/ ), kiu merkatas "kostelporteblajn kaj efektajn" lingvoinstruilojn.

Mi volas inviti ĉiujn de miaj amikoj viziti la retpaĝon. Tio helpus miajn taksojn.

Mi scias, ke iom da vi -- kaj vi scias kiun vi estas! -- iros al la retpaĝon nur por trovi miajn erarojn. Tial, mi faros iom por plufeliĉigi vin.

Bonvolu viziti la blogpaĝon ĉe http://www.transparent.com/esperanto/

Arkpafado kaj Esperanto

bildo de Dreah

Mi klopodas unuigi du pasiojn miajn: Esperanton kaj Arkpafadon.

Kredu aŭ ne, mi jam trovis aliajn esperantistajn arkpafadistojn, kiuj ankaŭ kredis ke ili estas la solaj E-arkistoj en la mondo. Unu estas ruso, alia estas brazilano, kaj alia estas franco.

Nun, mi volas fondi novan klubon - Arkpafado Tutmonda Esperanto.

Ĉu mi nur anoncu la establon de la grupo? Kaj planu kunsidon ĉe la sekvanta UEA? Ĉu mi devus plani la mondturniron de Esperanto-parolantaj arkpafadistoj?

California Culture is More than just Cheese

In the 18th Century of the Current Era, Highlander Scots began emigrating to the New World in large numbers. Many, if not most, were forced to leave in what has become known as the Highland Clearances. One of the results of this diaspora is that there are now more sons and daughters of Scotland in the United States and Canada than in Scotland itself.

Things You Won't Find in the Free 10-Lesson Postal Course

bildo de Dreah

Esperanto-usa offers a free 10-lesson postal course which does an excellent job of getting people started on their esperantic journey. But it shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody that the postal course doesn't cover every aspect of Esperanto grammar. Yes, there are only 16 rules, but applying those rules is not always trivial. Yes, Esperanto is the easiest language in the world to learn, but it's still a living language and cannot and should not be treated trivially.

Esperantistaj anarkiistoj en la novaĵo

bildo de Dreah

I noted today that the creation of the Esperanto Association of North America is listed in the Anarchists' Calendar for September 7, 1908. Below is an excerpt from the Calendar. I continue to be amazed every day.

1908: Esperanto Association of North America is organized, Chautauqua Lake, NY. Anarchists around the world have long been ardent proponents of the movement. Early groups were founded in Stockholm (1905) & Paris (1906). Among better-known adherents are Pa Chin, Paco-Libereco Group, etc.

There were two pieces of information regarding the use of Esperanto floating about the blogosphere that caught my eye in the last couple of days.

Lack of English Proficiency Nearly Dooms Polish Airliner

Lack of English Proficiency Nearly Dooms Polish Airliner

This June 12, 2008 article of the TimesOnlline tells the harrowing story of how a LOT Boeing 737 very nearly perished due to the pilots’ lack of proficiency in English.

A common argument against using Esperanto as an international language is that “everybody already speaks English.” Not only is that not true, but even the pilots who jet you away to your exotic foreign port o' call may not be able to speak it.

Hot Female Archers Needed!

Jes, tiun eksciigis la retpoŝto. Jen la kompleta mesaĝo:

I'm looking for hot female archers for a Viking Funeral segment I'm producing in San Francisco as part of an eco show for the Discovery Network. Women will be dressed in Viking costume and must shoot flaming arrows with great accuracy. Filming will occur in mid April.

If you know of anyone please have them contact me ASAP.
