Brazil ISP iG has launched a blog platform powered by WordPress MU, in Portuguese. BliG, as it is called, is in beta and produced by Incsub, a company specializing in WordPress MU. The project is profiled on the WordPress Publisher Blog, and they think it is great that WordPress MU gets adopted by such a big player in the Brazilian Internet space. That’s true for sure, but add to the fact that there are some 240 million Portuguese speakers, and you’ve got even more potential.
While we’re at it: WordPress MU recently got updated to 2.6.2.
