Hi Alex,

Maybe you don't know that OSGeo has a Spanish Language local chapter.
We have a mailing list and we're almost finished the process to be an
official LC of OSGeo. You can get more info at our entry page[1] at
osgeo wiki or go to the #osgeo-es irc channel to see if there's

Finally, in February 2009 there will be an event at La Habana (Cuba)
where some OSGeoers will meet to perform a one day workshop and some
presentations about OSGeo and other projects[2].
