After the keynote, which Barry also covered, I got the opportunity to get introduced with Barry Diller and spend a couple minutes with him. So I asked, "what is your vision in all of this for Ask with regards to Latin America and Spanish searchers in general?". He responed, "Latin America is a very important market for Ask going forward (along with other markets too). I think we're not doing enough and all of that will be changing."

That sounds to me like a COMMITMENT to GROWTH. Perhaps Barry understands that Latin America represents an opportunity to gain market share over its competitors? Smart guy! Then again, what if Ask's competitors are way ahead already and it will difficult to catch up as it has been in the U.S. market. Only time will tell, it's still to early to know. In my opinion, they have all just gotten started within the last 12 months.

Opportunities come and go, very few get a good chance to really profit BIG on them. Outstanding keynote! I see great things going on at Ask.
