First TV station in Esperanto

When the entrepreneur, Flavio Rebelo, from São Paulo, Brazil, told the world he would launch Internacia Televido, a TV station completely in the international language Esperanto, everyone told him he was crazy. But, starting last Saturday (Nov 5, 2005), the first Esperanto TV station could be viewed by Internet users throughout the world. It presents various programs which cover news, documentaries, interviews, music, movies, exotic cultures and tourism. The station is a result of a two-year project which also administers the largest Esperanto portal Ghangalo (‘jungle’ in English). Esperanto is a completely developed language which could be considered an open source spoken language as its development happened in a similar style as open source projects. Esperanto is a completely developed language with an active worldwide community which uses the Internet more and more as its primary method of communication.

Update: I just sent this blog entry to slashdot. We'll see if they accept it. Rejected. Now trying boingboing, memepool and kuro5hin with the above change...

Gxi aspectas bone, nun. Mi povas regardi gxin.

Estas interesa ke la nuntempa vocxdono pri la vononta projekto estas disponigi aliaj sistemoj krom WVM. Cxi-tiu estas super produktanta aliaj programoj.

Sed, gix estas bona komenco!

Mi nun sukcesis funkciigi ĝin sub Vindozo post instalo de WMP10. Ĝis nun sensukcese makintoŝe.

Mi ĝojas pro la finfina lanĉo!

Maybe it's just as well that you didn't succeed in slashdotting Esperanto TV in its first week. Could be a bummer to watch its server crash so soon. :)

Did you seriously just spell Ĝangalo with an "h"? Excuse me, I'm going to go find something to strike you with...
Nov. 10th, 2005 02:24 pm (UTC)
Um, it's very common to use an h when you don't have Unicode available and I wrote this for external news sources...

There is also the fact that the URL is to www.ghangalo.com with an h, even if some of the links on that page redirect to www.gxangalo.com . :-)

In any case: gratulon! Do you wish you were in Brazil instead?

Sometimes I wish I were in Brazil. I mean, I did want to work for ITV because I thought it would be a great experience. On the other hand, I think this university researcher job in Germany will advance my career more...

Unfortunately, I don't think any of the news sources that I sent the paragraph to have accepted it. :( But, at least I tried, I figure.

It's also common that I pepper my conversation with sarcastic Family Guy quotes. All in love, I swear. Supersignoj FOR EVER... Go Wolverines...

(Yes, I also spice them with references to Red Dawn)

Actually, it does look as if your release got boing-boinged. I tried a british-english version of the release with about 30-40 different sources, but nothing :( Although my Wikinews article did get picked up by a few places.

Cool. So maybe all that work did pay off a bit. :)
