Re: toki musi pi tenpo mun ali tawa jan pi toki pona

Since there would be multiple authors, I don't know if a blog would work; (I think a blog only allows 1 contributor). You could use a wiki like Wikia, http:/tokipona.wikia.comwiki/lipu_lawa (which al...

Re: Draft one of toki pona lesson for twitter

jan Mato o, toki. Have you been tweeting (or whatever it is called) these tp lessons out? And did I miss them because I know next to nothing about twitter except for the toki lili variant?

Re: toki ali o... en ijo ante mute

I usually use the official system that jan Sonja proposed and write them as if they are roman numerals. So my age is MLLLTT. The Roman numeral system falls apart at about about 150 or 300 or so.

Re: ma tawa lon ma Nijon

Thanks for the comments.
