OSGeo colleagues,

I was recently contacted by Ann Deakin, a Geosciences faculty at the State
University of New York - Fredonia campus. She is also on the board of
directors of the NYS GIS Association and the chair of their education
committee. She was asking me about the possibility of offering a webinar to
their members (and anyone considering getting into GIS) on open source GIS.

This sounded like a really good idea to me, as a possible new (?) way of
promoting OSGeo technologies.

I'm wondering if anyone has already done this kind of thing?
Would any of our "knowledge experts" out there be willing to do such a
webinar? (If so, let me know in what area) If we can get something like this
designed, we could either do it first working with Ann and the NYS GIS
Association, or perhaps try and scale the webinar up to a larger and more
international crowd.

Reactions welcome!

Charlie Schweik
OSGeo education chair
