Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

I am Lwin Moe, a programmer here at LINGUIST List. I am originally from Burma, also known as Myanmar.
I came to work at LINGUIST List as an intern two summers ago, and came back as a programmer after
graduating from Indiana University. Before I tell you more about myself and how much I have learned
about linguistics and technology through LINGUIST List, here is a link to donate if you will:
https://linguistlist.org/donation/donate/donate1.cfm

I learned about LINGUIST List while working at the Center for Research in Computational Linguistics
in Bangkok (www.sealang.net). I had to work with linguistic resources, particularly for Southeast Asia,
and came across OLAC (Open Language Archives Community), of which LINGUIST List is a partner. I learned
best practices for the digital archiving of language resources through OLAC and LINGUIST List.

While working in Bangkok, I also came to know great linguists from Thailand, Burma, Cambodia,
Australia, UK and USA because Bangkok seemed to be the hub of the region for linguists
interested in Southeast Asian languages.

These linguists and LINGUIST List inspired me so much that I decided to come to Indiana University (IU)
to study linguistics. While studying at IU's Linguistic Department, I saw an announcement for an
internship at LINGUIST List. I decided to apply and was accepted to work as an intern in the summer
of 2010. I was involved in MultiTree project (www.multitree.org) and several others.

I enjoyed working here and decided to come back after graduating from Indiana University in December, 2010.
I was able to become a part of the LINGUIST List crew because of your support. I would like to take this
opportunity to request a small donation from you to support what we do here. We would not be able to provide
the linguistics community with these valuable resources if it were not for your generous support.

Here is the link to donate:

Thank you,
Lwin Moe
