All,

I added this onto the board agenda.

>>>>
>>>> We’re holding a regional Geo conference and would like to include a
OSGeo-Live thumb drive in each attendees goody bag.  So, please consider
this an official request for funding of OSGeo Live Thumb Drives for the
event.
>>>>
>>>> This is a multi- discipline, multi-state event for all things Geo.  60
confirmed presenters.  This will be a highly knowledgable audience and
because of the varied subject matter it will be an excellent venue to get
the word out to new folks about OSGeo and it’s mission, via the OSGeo Live
project.  More info about the event can be seen here:

>>>> www.umgeocon.org
>>>>
>>>> We’ve planned for 350 attendees.  We can make our own thumb drives,
and/or pay to have them made ourselves.  We’ve handed these out in the past
and will also include a getting started cheat sheet for each user to get
them going with the least amount of effort.
>>>>
>>>> I haven’t checked lately for the going rate on these.  Local suppliers
are advertising ~$5 each for an 8GB USB3.0 blank drive.
>>>>
>>>> Request is for $2000 ($1750 for Drives, $250 for copying the OSGeo
Live suite to each).
>>>>
>>>> Related, my submission of the OSGeo Live presentation has been
accepted at the event, and there will also be a (free) GeoMOOSE workshop.
