What about something with a focus on sharing... I find this to be something of most interest in the people I talk to. I agree, the Free Software slant doesn't click so much with established geomatics organization, but provide them a means to share their data without the need for duplication and they are all ears.

Just my thoughts.

I fully agree, Tyler. It should be data aggregation, analysis, whatever, done with the OSGeo stack.
