Somebody please note. I understand only English.
Ok. Rant post ahead.
The Internet has penetrated all of the world.
Ok, maybe not. I sometime do look out of my window and see poor people crapping on the sidewalks, because they got no place to go.
But the Internet is definetely accessible to all the people who actually make decisions or are part of it. And some vellas like me who just keep tabs on these decision-making people and observe them, whilst getting obese 😛
All decision making people except maybe the Vatican? Does the Pope use the Internet? Dunno 🙂
Anyways, no more happy smilies in a rant post 😡
I seriously wish someone would do something about so many languages on the Internet.
I keep checking out referred links that seem gibberish to me. And I read comments that seem gibberish to me. And it wastes a lot of my time because I never know beforehand what language is a particular website in!
For example, I like to browse through the “Latest Posts” on my WordPress.com dashboard soemtimes, discovering new blogs. But about 70% of the times I reach blogs that are not written in English! Maybe that’s because I share this timezone with the Chinese and the Russians etc. and all of us tend to blog during normal waking hours? I’ve sent this as a Feedback on WordPress.com, but I’m sure they’ve been busy with other more important stuff 🙂
But whatever it is, I really wish I’d be warned by some bubble help before I click on links that it would lead me to a non-English blog i.e. a blog that is not in one of my understood languages.
That IS a cool idea, isn’t it? Now since I can’t think how to develop this feature, I’ll just link it to LazyWeb, I think 😛
