I fully agree with your point of view - since I'm no longer at the 
university, I can understand that me, as developer, can get my celery 
exclusively through business.

I actually do not have any strong statement to this. I just try to put 
together some ideas, which are coming trough my head.

Does everybody agree, that global FOSS4G is really more about 
"developers meeting"? And so, developers are the ones, who are putting 
together the biggest budget for OSGeo (correct me, if I'm wrong)?

So what do do about it? Discount for every developer for global FOSS4G 
(just another - more socialist - idea)?
