Hmm. I was talking very specifically about US-based developers. I had thought that, in that context, "overseas" would be pretty clear.
To my mind it was crystal clear. I think you'd have to be actively looking for US-centrism to find it in your article.
As far as we can tell, there are more LWN readers outside of the US than within. I spend a good part of every year going to those readers. We all work very hard to adopt a perspective beyond the US - something that, shall we say, people raised in this country are not normally encouraged to do. I am sorry if you didn't like my phrasing there. I can try to do better - I guess one must use absolute coordinates at all times, even when the origin has been made explicit - but it's hard to feel like this was all that big a mistake.
Hard to see how it was any mistake at all, actually. Keep up the great work Jon.
