OSGeo Board,
FOSS4G has one lightening talk slot remaining to be filled and we are 
looking for your recommendation for a good speaker to fill this slot.

Currently we have:
* Schuyler Earle (legend from previous conferences)
* Pete Fraser (from Spatial Media in New Zealand and highly recommended 
by our New Zealand committee members)
* Dale Lutz (SAFE software, again recommended as a very good presenter 
with insight into the Geospatial industry)

Who else fits into the "very high quality speaker" category from the 
OSGeo community.
(Paul Ramsey is keynoting, so he is off the list).
