> Since then the name DM Solutions has become synonymous with open source

> MapServer and have also been appreciated by the community.
> Dave has great experience in selling the value of open source geospatial
> technologies in the hard edged business world.  He also has community
> building skills, and a willingness to do the right thing even if it not
> the most expedient for his own business needs.
> Dave played a critical role in the launch of OSGeo, and I look forward
> keeping his nose to the grindstone to help make it a big success.
