I designed an alternative Lojban logo, depicted above, and would be very happy to provide free illustrations and page layout for upcoming editions of The Complete Lojban Language or What Is Lojban?, The Book.

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:
