Last time I checked we had staff in 14 countries....

Some Working Groups have more participants from the US than others --
I was at a meeting recently at which four continents were represented,
with the US a minority.

The software industry in general, however, is US-dominated, so it's
not really surprising if we tend to have more participants from the US.
