I founded the first Lojban website in 1994 and was also involved in polishing the grammar,

However, times do change, and so does my life. I'm retired now after working for 44 years as an IT specialist, more than 40 of those years intertwined with Animal Genetics & Co., and will have time and opportunity enough for my various Hobby-Horses.
