I've updated it now without this, instead just using regions to group
where the offices are. Lets start like that and see what things look
like once there is a bunch of data in there. If we need to, we can add
the separate region then. 

Also, it no longer lists the regions, as this can be read in the
"Location" field, which makes the list take up less space.


>2) Divvy it up by language instead.

Not sure how that helps. I think it's better to group it on the regions
that the company has offices in.

Right, which is why we're grouping by region ATM. 
While they are all on the same page now, that can easily be split up
once we have more data, if necessary (there are already bookmarks onthe
page so you can jump to your own region fast)

No matter how it's ordered, it will discriminate against someone. Unless
you want to do random order that changes every time the mirrors update?
I think something predictable is better, and nobody can really argue
that alphabetically isn't a standard way to rder things :-)
