Pangram is a social network for reviving and preserving minority languages by means of collaborative and participative efforts. By harnessing the openness of the internet, social networks and the proliferation of networked devices, the possibility of preventing further loss of language diversity is greater than ever. As spoken word comes before literacy (yet is often the most ignored element). The site aims to provide an intriguing audio based platform that encourages the less fluent to engage, learn and connect with native speakers. It hopes to bridge the gap brought about by dominating languages and prevent languages from vanishing entirely whilst adding to a growing archive of spoken word.
Pangr.org is a project I embarked on in my fourth and final year in Interaction Design at the University of Dundee (Duncan of Jordanstone). If you'd like to know more, please visit pangr.org or send me a message through Vimeo :)
