Globalization Blogs

I've been doing an interesting side-project the last couple of weeks - it's an inventory of the blogs from my team, the Globalization team. There are 153 of us all over the world but the biggest constituencies are in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dublin, Prague, Bangalore, Beijing and Tokyo.

Here are some interesting things I learned.

1. Almost all of the bloggers felt bad that they didn't update their content more regularly.

2. Almost all of the non-bloggers said they don't blog because they don't know what they would write about. (I point them to my blog and say, "See, lack of content doesn't have to stop ya!")

3. The majority of our bloggers (75%) are in the Asian offices. Most of the content is in English, but many also post in Japanese or Chinese.

4. Some of our bloggers have pretty popular content - 3 of them are regularly found on the "Hot Blogs" list on the front page of blogs.sun.com. They are Akira, Masaki and Petr.

Here's the list of all the blogs, along with a note about their languages:

Thanks for pointing that out Andrea! They're fixed now, and I've had a little talk with my QA team (me). ;)
