Thought this might be of interest to many of you. I was asked to be  
guest editor for the geospatial edition of the Open Source Business  
Resource monthly journal.

A big thank you to Paul Ramsey, Tyler Mitchell, Mark Lucas, Scott  
Bortman, Andrew Ross, Haris Kurtagic and Geoff Zeiss for their  
contributions to this effort. Some excellent papers that provide a  
great perspective on the OSGeo world.
