My uncle just finished 1.6 kg, 700 pages long dictionary of Northern Sami, a language spoken by around 20,000 speakers.
Sami are an indigenous people who have inhabited large parts of Northern Europe spanning from Russia to Norway for millenniums.
He has dedicated his life to advocate for their rights and preserve their languages and culture. This book is a major contribution in an effort to ensure that this ancient language will be passed on to future generations.

Facebook sletta nettop ein post eg skreiv i fjor. Veldig suspekt sidan posten inneholdt nettop eit innlegg frå Free Software Foundation Europe. Eg har skrive fleire politiske innlegg på facebook men dette er det einaste som omhandlar programvare, og også det einaste som har vorte fjerna. Er det andre her inne som har opplevd liknande sensur frå Facebook?

Email vs Chat
@tc Enig med @harald, det e viktigare at dei he offisielle nettside med RSS/ATOM støtte enn nåke anna. RSS/ATOM e en universell standard, å det e greit å sleppe en konto for å fylge alt mylla himmel og jord. Hadde sjølvsagt vært interessant å sjå meir bruk av fødiverset til politisk debatt o.l, men ej trur det enn so lenge berre e en draum.
@vega Kommuner burde drite i Facebook-sidene sine og lage instanser i stedet. Mye bedre demokrativerktøy.
