I'm already researching equivalent web services. As soon as I can I'll post them here so we can discuss about it...

any progress?
Yes. Most of the links are gonna be kept or equivalents were found. They are:

Google Docs
http://docs.google.com/
It's popular on Brazil, so it's ok;

Remember the Milk
http://www.rememberthemilk.com/
People knows the service and it's already translated to pt-BR; keeping it;

LinkedIn
http://www.linkedin.com/
Also popular; keeping it;

Wikipedia
http://pt.wikipedia.org/
Used for a long time on Firefox here; keeping it;

HowStuffWorks
http://hsw.uol.com.br/
There's a Brazilian version; is it ok?

YouTube
http://br.youtube.com/
Also very popular here; keeping it;

Miro
http://www.getmiro.com/
People is starting to use this service and it's already translated to pt-BR; also keeping it;

Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/
Orkut (www.orkut.com) is more popular then Facebook, so it's going to replace it; is it ok?

There are four services I'm still looking for equivalent services (or if they stay):

Topix
http://www.topix.com/

Hype Machine
http://www.hypem.com/

craigslist
http://www.craiglist.org/

Yelp
http://www.yelp.com/
Ok, current status:

Work
----
Google Docs (docs.google.com)
Remember the Milk (www.rememberthemilk.com)
LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com)
Clipmarks 

keeping the same services;
keeping the same add-on;

Learn
-----
Wikipedia (pt.wikipedia.org)
HowStuffWorks (hsw.uol.com.br)
Universia (www.universia.com.br)
???

keeping wikipedia and howstuffworks, just adapting to portuguese content; Topix replaced by Universia, which is a latin american universities network;

add-on not chosen yet; community is thinking about Adblock Plus or Forecastfox, popular add-ons, since none "educational" add-on was found;

Play
----
Youtube (br.youtube.com)
Last.fm (www.lastfm.com.br)
Miro (www.getmiro.com)
PicLens

keeping youtube and miro, just adapting youtube to brazilian content; hype music was replaced by last.fm, which is more popular and already translated do portuguese;

keeping PicLens;

Connect
-------
Orkut (www.orkut.com)
craigslist (geo.craigslist.org/iso/br)
meebo (www.meebo.com)
???

keeping craigslist, just adapting to brazilian content; replacing facebook with orkut, which is very much more popular then facebook; replacing yelp with meebo, which is a MSN/ICQ/XMPP online client;

unsure about me.dium; thinking about meebo companion (addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/5700), but if it isn't good we can keep me.dium anyway;
any response to current status?

Fernando, apologies for delay
work - ok
learn - ok. for add-on, we prefer not to offer Adblock due to controversial nature, can you choose Forecastfox as alternative
play - ok
connect - ok me.dium or meebo is ok. first seems good given that meebo is already suggested in links
Created attachment 320376 [details]
Final version

Ok, keeping Forecastfox and Me.dium.

Attaching page sample. Bug closed? If so, I'm gonna attach the file also on main bug...
that's good for me, fernando please attach the file to the main bug, thanks
