Thanks Paolo for adding words to the important topics, the language
barrier and privacy matters.
As I mentioned in a previous mail, I'm not a member of TDF at least
now, so I will not reply to your comment. I think it's a
responsibility for the members.

Anyway, thank you for your warm words!

I would like to send a big thank you to Naruhiko for his work on live
translation. This is a difficult work but very important for the
understanding of the future actions of the Board.
Big thanks for your investment there, and also to the Japanese community
for its great presence :)

I'd like to join Sophie in thanking Naruhiko for translating the session
and for the insight provided of the Japanese community.

Language is a barrier for many so I believe it's important to have and
probably invest in people and tools that make exchanges of ideas easier
with the many LibreOffice communities around the world.

While there may be some cultural differences we have a lot of issues and
opportunities in common on which we need to work together.

One of the points that have been mentioned is Privacy. Also here in
Europe the vast majority of people is totally unaware of the issues
caused by what is sometimes called "surveillance capitalism" but changes
are happening here with various groups and even with new European laws
that should reduce the dependency on US providers.

Maybe there are similar groups dedicated to promoting privacy and
technological sovereignty that could help supporting LibreOffice?

Any other suggestions and information that could be useful to TDF to
help you out?
