Update, October 2015: The following things were true of me during most of the first decade of the 21st century-- the peak of my involvement in Lojban. For now, I will leave it reflecting what I did at that time. My withdrawal was mostly strategic, with the intention to return. I realized most of my goals for the Lojban language could only be accomplished with web development. Therefore, I strategically shifted how I spent my time, to switch careers into web development. That transition is now complete, and I am gradually returning to the community with my newfound technical skills. Rather than describe my planned future contributions, I will describe them only after I accomplish them.

I maintain an extensive Lojban page on my web site featuring:

  • a groovy Lojbanistan mural
  • reasons to value and enjoy Lojban as a puzzle and for its mystique
  • the translation of I Am A Little Teapot Of Borg
  • translations of Nicholas Gurewich's Perry Bible Fellowship web comic

I create the Lojban podcast, "jbocradi." I would like to someday host a call-in internet broadcast about the language assisted by chat and whiteboard communication.

Since being elected to membership in The Logical Language Group and board of directors, I had an idea to offer Lojban enthusiasts citizenship in a faux internet nation, xartum, which would double as a text-based online game.

I shepherd the following tasks:

1. Social Functions

- Organizing and attending Logfest. -- doing

- Scheduling phone chats through Wiki polls. -- not doing yet

- Scheduling IRC meetups through Wiki polls. -- not doing yet

- Creating, administering, and playing the Lojban MOO and roleplaying micronation, xartum. -- not doing yet

- Chartering branch clubs such as the one in Detroit, and the potential one in California. -- doing

- Coordinating collaborators on original Lojban literarature, music, art and film. -- not doing yet

2. Editorial Functions

- create an online digest of the blogs and other output of the Lojban community, for the homepage. -- doing

- encourage Lojban enthusiasts create profile pages for themselves on the wiki. -- trying

- continue producing the Lojban podcast -- on hiatus
