Blogging while bilingual

This year's Blogging While Black session at SxSW got me thinking: how about a panel next year on the subject of blogging while bilingual?

I'd like to hear from people who blog in more than one language, whether as an expression of their own cultural identity, in order to reach a polyglot audience or out of the pleasure of exploring a language and culture.

A balanced panel would include at least one Spanish-language Texas blogger and at least one international blogger using English part of the time to reach a global audience. I'd hope that the panel would include someone blogging in a threatened language or one that is rare online due to digital divide issues.

If I understand the South by Southwest programming process it's open to outside panel proposals. Anybody think this would be worth working on? Do you know of specific people you'd like to hear?
