Recently I joined the ranks of the TV streaming crowd by acquiring a Roku XS, largely out of frustration with substandard cable television programming. I soon discovered a few apps that I now regularly use, including TuneIn — and now I use it to access Muzaiko. Belega.
Now if Esperanto video was as easy to stream on a Roku…
Even as I am trying to relaunch my Eo–speaking net–studio, Konstelacio, I am already running into a number of issues, Copyright being one of them. That has also occurred to Aleksander Osincev of Kontakto, who has written an entire essay on the topic of Copyright vs. Esperanto media, and how gesamideanoj might still be able to produce and distribute new works.
Earlier today, I saw this note via Facebook in my in–box, attributed to Polskie Radio's Gabriela Kosziarska:
"Karaj Geaskultantoj, Karaj Radioamikoj, hodiaŭ ni havas por vi malĝojigan informon pri foresto de nia E–programo. Nome laŭ la decido de la Estraro de PR ekde hodiaŭ mi ne plu povas okupiĝi pri ili. Ni klopodos baldaŭ liveri al niaj aŭskultantoj kaj amikoj pliajn informojn."
Once again my work life (two jobs, as with so many others in the world) has interfered with my Esperanto studies and plans.

This past week I got an unexpected reaction to my plans for my net-studio, which was to be called Konstelacio.
All over a planned website, no less.
Just what we didn't need during any Universala Kongreso: a vandalized bust of Zamenhof.
But here it is, complete with photo:
Very briefly: Vinilkosmo has apparently woken up to the reality of the music biz, and this URL should say it all:
When I first began studying Esperanto in 2005, my hope that was that I would be able to create something with it — say new movies or the like. I did finally create one video short last year, in response to the financial crisis involving certain U.S. banking giants deemed "too big to fail," among other things.
I guess you know you are still very much a "komencanto" when you make naive assumptions about words in Esperanto.
Especially when you decide to use Esperanto in a hobby like digital movie making, as I am doing.
Mi nun estas sendependa video–reĝisoro. Bv. regardi la pruvon…
It has happened, folks. My first video employing Esperanto (in the intertitles and supertitles) is up for the viewing now:
