More blog love

Daniel Alexander, a good friend from Paris who’s studying to become an interpreter, has just started a blog on politics and language that’s already showing enormous promise. The link is here:  http://deverbalisethis.wordpress.com/.

He’s got a very insightful post up on why the world still needs interpreters, as well as a two part piece on Kosovo that’s definitely worth reading. Daniel’s an interesting guy – originally from England, lived in France for many years, in love with Eastern Europe, speaks Russian, Czech, Romanian and one or two other languages I’ve no doubt forgotten. He’s a proud left-winger and iconoclast, and his blog will no doubt reflect that in the days and weeks to come (he’s already posting at a pretty impressive rate, considering he only started the blog yesterday).
