Hey there, Chuck Smith and Richard Delamore (a.k.a. Evildea) here. As you’ve probably already heard, we’re developing an app called Amikumu, which you can use to find language partners near you, whether that’s as niche as Esperanto, as popular as English or as visual as American Sign Language, you’ll be able to find people to talk with (in over 7,000+ languages including 100+ sign languages)!

We’ve been blown away by the support from the language community as we launched our Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday and already reached our goal to raise €8,500 (US$9,400) in just 27 hours… you’re all so amazing! Now we’re going for our second stretch goal… next adding events to the app if we reach €13,000. So, we’re going to be here on Duolingo’s official forum for a couple hours on Sunday (or Saturday morning for those of you down under). Ask Us Anything in English or Esperanto! It doesn’t even have to be about the app.

We look forward to talking with you soon and if you just want to know more about us individually, check out the archives of our previous AMAs: Chuck Smith and Evildea

You can find our campaign at Amikumu on Kickstarter

Ve, do mi devas maldormi post meznokto por batadi Evildea-n per miaj impertinentaj demandoj. Ne gravas, mi estos preta. Ĉu li?

amuzulo [moderator]

Laŭ mia aktuala plano, mi malfermos la fadenon je la 20:00 mezeŭropa tempo por ke eŭropanoj povu starigi demandojn, kiujn li povos respondi dum la planita tempo. 🙂

According to my current plan, I’ll open the thread at 8pm Central European Time so that Europeans can ask questions, which he can then answer according to schedule. 🙂

Those in Alaska or the Mountain time zone are used to being ignored. But what about London?

And what about Australia, or India, or Fiji?

It’s not as if London, Alaska, and Mountain time are the only ones being “ignored”.


Most folk here (the U.K.) are, as far as I’ve experienced throughout my life, quite aware of how our time zone relates to mainland Europe (which is pretty uniform for the most part), so the info regarding Germany’s timezone is enough. We initiate and end DST on the same dates, so there’s no issues with misalignment – we’re always an hour behind.

I know, right? I live in the Mountain Time zone and I just missed it again. 😦


Grrrr I completely forgot about the AMAs yesterday and the one in May 😡 😛


puts the one in July on calendar

amuzulo [moderator]

Awww, sorry to hear that. 😦


Is this still being done?


n3aak, Mi certas, ke pli da tiaj “AMA” intervuoj , kun diversaj homoj, okazos. Ĉu mi jam respondis al demando via? *** Vi povas “tweet” al: @ChuckSmith / @duolingo


Will there be anymore AMAs?


AMA estus DMIA (Demandu Min Io Ajn) 😛

mizinamo [contributor]

Mi proponus: Demandu min pri io ajn.


Ĉu tio estas ĝusta frazo: „Demandu min pri ĉio“ — DMĈ


Lyubomirv, Mi konsentas kun Mizinamo entute ( ! ) —Keneĉjo
