Use your language skills to make the world a better place

This lengthy article in the Guardian provides some interesting food for thought about languages used on the internet.

My first thoughts on reading it are:

(1) Learning another language can dramatically open up the amount of information available to you.

(2) If you speak another language, writing Wikipedia articles in it can help fill in some of the knowledge gaps that exist in other languages.

Cheers,
