This Saturday, there is a meetup for the BIG people in the learnnavi.org community (people are flying in from all over the US AND the WORLD!!! JUST for this!!!!)!!! AND Paul Frommer, the creator of the language, is going to be there. They’re gonna work on the language hardcore-style from 9:30am. I’m going to the afterparty!

Oh god, I hope I did it right. I’m trying to say “and may you always live in harmony with nature” I guess. AUUUGHHH
