Steve / Robert,

I *suspect* the affinity card is US only and that we would likely thus have
a fairly modest uptake.  I'm not too sure how serious the group health
comment was, but likewise I assume it would be US only and hard to justify
a great deal of organizational effort for limited uptake.

If it wasn't for the balkanization of the global financial system, I would
be tempted by the idea of an OSGeo affinity card.  Certainly nicer than my
current "GM" affinity card.
