An Offense of Esperanto
Sept. 4, 2018 | Justin Kunimune

Neo Patwa is a gem. It’s a little on the minimalistic side, but nearly perfect in most other ways. Despite all I’ve said about it, you should probably also consider Esperanto. Its popularity in the realm of auxlangs cannot be overstated, and knowing it might even turn out to be a useful skill in coming decades. After that, I recommend Toki Pona, which only has 120 words and about a dozen grammar rules. It’s far too ambiguous and simplistic to be an effective IAL, but it’s fairly popular and so easy to learn that if you’re studying auxlangs already, you might as well check that one off.
If you hunger for more after that, look at Elefen, which is a perfect execution of the generic eurocentric auxlang, or Kotava, which is pretty decent despite its massive vocabulary.

If you mean with words from many languages:

The response to this argument was made by Alexander Gode and reiterated by Mario Pei: A vocabulary selected from a broad variety of languages does not make the language any easier for speakers of any one language.

Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internat (a theoretical example contrast is given too)

I view this reasoning as possibly close to: The more diverse languages an IAL uses, the harder it is for anyone to easily understand (theoretically and as an admitted generalisation with all the normal caveats for generalisations).

Which hints at a trade-off, and each IAL has to decide how to balance language diversity against immediate intelligibility for a certain set of speakers. And some IALs do go for the more diverse side of the balance:

There are attempts at involving more languages, for example Lingwa de planeta (LdP) "is based on the most widely spoken languages of the world" but of its ten representative/main-source languages, a significant number are still Indo-European; the ten are: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, which between them represent a significant portion of the world's population's native languages.

LdP site: enlidepla.esy.es/

Toki Pona, not an IAL but an artlang, also draws on several world languages. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toki_Pon

Sometimes this type of IAL which draws on several diverse world languages is called a worldlang: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worldlan

Wow, did you know that Let's Encrypt can set up TLS certificates for ALL of the domains that you host on the same server? Last time I set it up, it couldn't!

I'm so happy that I no longer have "second-class" domains on my server! 😄

Thank you very much for helping us to encrypt the web, dear #LetsEncrypt!

maeril.tumblr.com/post/1612049 une BD expliquant le principe de non-mixité.
Je la trouve très cool mais je doute qu'elle suffise à convaincre les opposants à cette idée, comme toujours ce sont les personnes qui sont déjà pour qui vont faire tourner ça entre elles :/

The Dat project, with hypercore lib and beakerbrowser.com/ are really promising!

Are there any tooters who played with it? Any feedbacks?

Le monde est vraiment plein de cons.
Corollaire : Internet est vraiment plein de cons.
Conséquence : Twitter est vraiment plein de cons.
Corner case : Il est probable que Mastodon soit plein de cons, bien que les mesures ne soient pas encore statistiquement fiables.
