Ever taught about the language issue?
I went to make an account on Deepbit to check, and you can choose English, Russian(I think?) and an Asian language(Japanese? Korean? Chinese?). After that, I went to check the teams:
1 OverClockers.Ru Join 849 696.80 M 256.09 GH/s
2 Ukraine Join 306 381.41 M 141.27 GH/s
3 RonPaul2012 Join 159 272.83 M 117.09 GH/s
4 America Join 508 361.41 M 113.03 GH/s
5 Bulgaria Join 211 341.91 M 97.66 GH/s
6 Poland Join 259 251.25 M 95.02 GH/s
7 vOz Join 322 401.25 M 93.92 GH/s
8 Beijing Join 26 135.03 M 82.77 GH/s
9 Germany Join 353 159.91 M 60.73 GH/s
10 RMB Join 130 184.88 M 51.30 GH/s
11 Canada Join 149 114.83 M 49.62 GH/s
12 FRANCE Join 64 81.25 M 40.34 GH/s
13 Russia Join 176 124.89 M 33.96 GH/s
14 Belarus Join 56 75.64 M 30.11 GH/s
15 Serbia Join 31 75.06 M 21.56 GH/s
So, we can clearly see that we have Russia(2 times!), Ukraine, Bulgaria, Poland, Beijing, Germany, Belarus, Serbia. You almost have 1 THash only looking at the top 15 teams. And we don't know about the individuals who are NOT in a team.
My guess is that a large group of miners don't care because they don't talk your language. They don't understand you, they don't know all the fuss is about and, more importantly, Deepbit is the only large pool I know that have a complete interface that cater to the languages of these people. That's why they go there, because they can understand what is written on their screen.
I've already tried to start a topic/project about a way of introducing Bitcoins in different languages (French notably, because business is in french here). I got NO replies, answer, PM, whatever, like the only language on this planet is English.
You know that only 25% of the Internet use English correct?http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats7.htm
How can you make Bitcoin international if you cater to the needs of only 25% of the population? Where is the multi-language client? Where is the multi-language version of this website: http://www.weusecoins.com/
? Or of the video on it?
But hey, go on with your revolution against Deepbit. Write english messages everywhere so that people who don't understand that language can be sure they never care about what you say.
Wanted to add, if Tycho ever see this post, is that I congratulate him for being one of the rare person who try to make mining more international. He is an example to be made of, not somebody to be shame of. And no, I don't mine on his pool.
