As a non-native English speaker, I think hackers *have* to make an effort
into sharing information in a common language. I think any technological
information should be available in English and the local informations
should prefer this language too. When I visit Berlin, Tokyo or Budapest, it
is nice to be able to get the local informations about the next hacker events.

Frankly, I'm against americano-imperialism as much as the next guy, but I
feel that having functional skills in English is a must have for any techie.
