LEARN ESPERANTO!  USE IT IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL WORK, IN YOUR

TRAVELS, IN YOUR INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS!

Dec 6, 1988

Men of AntiArctica, greetings from the warm north.  I am

speaking to you as an U S citizen and Electrical Engineer working with the most popular, most mass-produced computer in the world (IBM-PC). Powerful, now-inexpensive, and mass-produced by the millions, this machine is the AK-47 rifle of computer equipment– they are everywhere! Unfortunately, this computer can not be considered a world-standard because the software is still based on the English language.

I firmly beleive it would be better to have a standard,

world-wide environment of software based on the world interlanguage ESPERANTO–providing easy software tools for WORK, PLAY, LEARNING, and MANAGEMENT; and thus bringing the perfectly-valid concept of the Esperanto world-interlanguage into the "Information & Telecommunications Age". I can provide the software and the training materials (tapes, books, and printouts to learn and use Esperanto for English, Spanish, and Russian speakers), and you have the perfect place at which to implement it. Together, we could have the whole continent of AntArctica (200 men) speaking to each other in Esperanto in 1989, and using battery powered IBM-PC Esperanto computers for scientific data-processing, management, and entertainment.

I am not trying to sell you anything, I will give you what I

have (by mail and in-person at Punta Arenas); because the concept is good and I would like to see it work.

My wife an I have scheduled a vacation to Chile an I will be in

Punta Aranas, Chile on January 25-27, 1989. It would be good to meet with Sr. Patrico Calderon of COMAPA, and with any representative from Palmer Station to discuss the possibilities and advantages of Esperanto and computers. If you contact me by mail, I could bring additional tape-players or a battery-operated computer for donation to Palmer Station personnel. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,
George Brooks, US Citizen
