I'd love to see a FOSS4G presentation, or even a thread of presentations 
+ panel, about Open Source Policy initiatives at the Government level, 
especially if it can be discussed in conjunction with specific 
geospatial examples.

Could also be a good "Birds of a Feather" session.
Who knows a good person to invite to give such presentations?
