Hi Guillermo!

Great news about FOSS4G-Ecuador plans, this is wonderful.  There are 
very few limitations and rules for holding a FOSS4G in your country, and 
that is why it has spread around the whole world so fast! :)  You should 
quickly purchase the domain http://foss4g.ec and then start thinking of 
your logo: really the only consistent part of FOSS4G (besides the FOSS4G 
spirit) is the ribbon in the logo, which symbolizes sharing and the flow 
of ideas and innovation in the community - check here for some past 
ideas http://foss4g.org but there are many more out there.  Another 
great example is the FOSS4G-SOTM Argentina 2017 logo: 

In terms of Latin America and FOSS4G, it is great to see so many events 
popping up for 2017 (Argentina, Brazil, Peru,...).  I also try to help 
these events along, so I will be happy to join your local committee 
meetings remotely and provide any help along the way - my pleasure!

So yes please share the FOSS4G spirit in Ecuador and plant the seed for 
our future generations! :)  Thank you Guillermo! (and talk soon)
