Probably the interest level is about the same for everyone. If you are
bored with what SPI does, it probably doesn't matter where you live :-)
We have three non-US people on the SPI board: David Graham (Canada), Ian
Jackson (UK), Joey Schulze (Germany), if I remember correctly. We also
have non-US people that occasionally help us translate web pages.
As far as I know, we have no rules regarding the nationality of members
or officers of SPI.
