Measuring Linguistic Diversity on the Internet.

Coincidences (or signs) seem to abound this week. Following Conn’s post and my reply on his upcoming decision on whether or not to begin posting in English as well as Irish, I recieved this link from a totally different source…

“UNESCO has been emphasizing the concept of ‘knowledge societies’, which stresses plurality and diversity instead of a global uniformity in order to bridge the digital divide and to form an inclusive information society. An important theme of this concept is that of multilingualism for cultural diversity and participation for all the languages in cyberspace.”

I should also note that Bernie Goldbach has posted his thoughts on Conn’s post. Well put, Bernie.
