We love acronyms at IBM ("I've Been Moved," "It's Better Manually," "I Blame Microsoft," "I Buy Mainframes," etc etc etc ad nauseum ad infinitum).
Here's a new one for you: BRIC.
Know what it means? If not, here's a hint: Think flat earth, three billion new capitalists, etc
Brazil. Russia. India. China.
Although the hyperbole about the emerging opportunities in the BRIC countries may be sometimes overblown, you also know you probably can't afford to ignore them, considering what's at stake.
Our Developer Relations team just announced they are doing their part as IBM works to expand the developer ecosystem in several emerging economies. We'll be doing everything from rolling out workshops to helping developers learn about open standards technology to help them build and deploy open standards applications more quickly, to providing access to IBM hardware and software.
