More GlassFish in Latin America?

Map of Latin America

Darben says that Latin America is not getting enough attention and he may be right. For example, I just looked at the top Downloads of GF @ JN and the highest ranking is Brazil (23), next is Argentina (30) and then Mexico (40), all lower than I would expect.

GlassFish v2 beta is just around the corner so this may be a good time to try harder. Here are some ideas:

•  Versions of GF Presentations in spanish and portuguese.
•  More visibility to the existing El Acuario.
•  Find a translator for TA into Brazilian Portuguese, Sun employee, or not!
•  Hold a weekly LatinAmerica hour at the GlassFish IRC channel.
•  ... or give us your favorite idea.

I am very interested in your feedback. My current plan is to start a weekly LatinAmerican hour at the IRC chat, but you let us know!


My favorite idea? Send Jamey down to personally market GlassFish on all Latin American beaches. ;)

I'm from Spain and have no problem with english. But my blog is in spanish and i see a lot of people from spain and latin america reads it (tomcat, java, linux, etc.). I think it would be a good idea (and the IRC, i love it.) Regards.
