It’s Greek to Me (Or so said the community)

It’s hard to miss the social media and Web 2.0 trends that have spawned numerous venture-backed start-ups over the past few years.  It’s also hard to miss the emergence of the “flat world”, where our kids can be tutored (online) on their fourth grade math … from a teenager in Bangalore, India.  My latest discovery is an interesting combination of these trends – a social network and web site (www.livemocha.com) that provides “the social way to learn a language”.

Visit their site and you’ll find their three-pronged approach: Learn, Practice, Share.  During “practice”, you can invite your friends to “join the conversation and motivate each other”.  During “share”, you connect with others, sharing tips and getting free tutoring.  All seems pretty neat to me.  Here’s the question I’d have for the folks at Livemocha: on your “Which language do you want to learn?” drop-down menu, when will you be adding Ruby on Rails? :-)
