Hi Maxim, OSGeo board,

Is someone available to present a variant on the OSGeo-Live presentation 
(English and German script is available)
http://live.osgeo.org/en/presentation/index.html#/

This presentation is a very good introduction to what is available in 
Open Source GIS, which is great to show people who are just starting to 
be introduced to OSGeo.

Maybe someone would like to translate it to Russian?
I notice we have a number of Russian speakers in our list of 
OSGeo-Advocates:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Advocate

You might want to approach some of these people if you are looking for a 
presenter.

Warm regards, Cameron
