On December 6, 2018 at 10am Pacific Time, Jost introduced the Language Technology Wiki (langtech.wiki), which was built by language professionals for language professionals to shape the tools and technology of tomorrow.

Jost worked with attendees to review some of the existing categories and data on the wiki to formulate new ideas to help build a vision of the technology of tomorrow.
