I'd like to extend a personal welcome to you from OSGeo. (I'm sorry it
has taken me so long to do this.)
I think it is great to have someone from a company like Bentley on
board. You mentioned that you believe there is a role fro both
proprietary and open source software. I think we would all benefit for
more discussion on this topic. For example, what plans does Bentley
have, if any, for incorporating open source code/libraries into their
products? Does the company support open file formats?
I found this link using Google:
I think this is a great step in the correct direction. (What would it
take to get Autodesk to do the same with DWG?)
I hope I have the change to work with you at OSGeo. We're mainly and
Autodesk shop at my day job, but we have recently acquired a license for
on installation of Microstation.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] Introduction
I just wanted to send out an email to introduce myself. I have been
reading these threads for a while, but have never really had the time to
offer support. I can now dedicate time to really contribute and be an
effective part of the OSGeo community.
My name is Mike Goldberg, and recently graduated (2006) from
Shippensburg University with a degree in Geography / GIS. Post
undergrad, i spent a year in Shanghai, taking in the culture and
learning as much Mandarin I could. Currently, I work for Bentley Systems
as an Account Manager for their Geo/Civil product lines.
I am a fairly new Linux user but love the Open Source aspect of the OS.
I'll be honest and say that I haven't had much experience with the open
source GIS solutions as I've done most of my work with proprietary
software in Windows.
I hope to bring fresh ideas to help bolster Open Source GIS as an
alternative, not a replacement, to proprietary software. I think there
is a time and place for both, with each having it's own benefits and
I look forward to working with everyone here to make Open Source
