First posts in reaction to the first TEDx talk in Esperanto

The very warm welcome given by the attendees for the first TEDx talk in Esperanto, at this year’s TEDxMadrid, carried over into a wave of positive and enthusiastic, thankful and congratulatory tweets. Now we’re glad to see the first posts in reaction to the talk beginning to appear.

The very warm welcome given by the attendees for the first TEDx talk in Esperanto, at this year’s TEDxMadrid, carried over into a wave of positive and enthusiastic, thankful and congratulatory tweets. Now we’re glad to see the first posts in reaction to the talk beginning to appear.

One of them appeared on a blog whose name is Consumo Colaborativo (Collaborative Consumption in English). We owe them gratitude for long lists of projects related to the world of free software, co-consumption, co-working and co-development. Here’s how they summarized and titled the talk.

Esperanto as a Linux language

It was the first TED talk in history done in Esperanto, and it got the attendees so excited that they gave David one of the biggest ovations of the day. David explained to us that language is the software we use to talk and to debate, so Esperanto represents the most open and egalitarian option that exists. As in the case of Linux, the most important thing isn’t taking marketshare away from Windows or Mac OS X, but the fact of using something that works well and makes us free…

Another post, with the whole text of the talk, was published online – the article version will also appear in the upcoming paper edition – by YOROKOBU, the leading magazine on trends on the Iberian Peninsula. Here’s how they introduce the text of the talk.

Is Esperanto the language of the future?

David de Ugarte takes the stage. The economist and technologist started to pronounce words that no one undertstood. They appeared, written up on a screen behind him, as he pronounced them. Below were the same words, translated into Spanish. Finnish? A Hobbit language? Some language created by the “Indianos?” No. It was a language that tries to make everyone equal, and of which, according to the founder of la Sociedad Cooperativa de las Indias Electrónicas, one can “ask the same thing as that one asks of software: to work well and be free, but also for it to let us be at the same level, and especially, that it let us be and collaborate as peers.

As we continue waiting for the publication of the finished video of the talk, together with you, we want to begin the work of benefitting from the chance for discussion that has been opened up after the talk.
