[I will be posting the same to the OSGEO discussion list, from a different
address - so apologies for cross-postings]
In Italy we are
having a lot of elaboration on the concept of "sharing", as well as on the
relationship between "local" communities and "local" organisations with
"global" communities and "global" organisations [with the term "global" to be
intended as it used to be before the post-modern concept of globalisation was
In the bulge of activities and projects, I managed to make available
online the presentation I gave with a GFOSS.it/Italian OSGeo chapter in the
closing meeting of the three-month mapping campaign in Milano (code name M(')
The PDF is available, in Italian, from the "Presentazioni"
section on http://www.gfoss.it/drupal/materiale
Thinking of the non-Italian
reading audience, and trying not to spend a huge load of time in the
translation, I sought assistance from one of the known automated translation
services. And this is what I got:
I remember trying similar exercises when
such services where launched, and having hours of sheer entertainment...I
hadn't been trying this for a while, and what I read in computer-aided-
translation-English-with-no-review is *beyond all expectations*.
discovered that one of the GFOSS.it board members is named Steven Coast
(Stefano Costa). I never realised this before today.
Possibly we have a new
character together with the "fake SteveC" ?
Also "Thankses" is not bad.
GETTING BACK TO THE MAPS:
Independently of the amenity of the pseudo-
translation, I'll be glad to follow on or expand on specific points of
interest. I think there are some to consider ;)
