I'm happy to lend my conference bridge for the task. Skype might work too  
depending on how many people are involved.

I suggest the following timeslot [1] for a meeting to start building a  
recommendation for LocationTech engagement in future FOSS4G events.

I'm hopeful that we can see a representative in this meeting from upcoming  
foss4g events, especially foss4g-nottingham and foss4g-na. David Bitner  
William and Steven Feldman, will you or someone who can speak for your LOC  
be able to make this timeslot?

If anyone who wishes to attend, and can't make this time, please suggest a  
different day (or time?)
