I would like to nominate Barend Köbben,  University of Twente (ITC, Netherlands) as Charter Member of OSGeo. Barend has done excellent contributions to the educational efforts of Open Source GIS not only through his teaching and research in his university but also wider outreach programs. One good example is his short courses and workshops in Open Source GIS & WebMapping, promoting the use of the Open Source geospatial applications and data  (recent one in AGILE for example at http://kartoweb.itc.nl/kobben/AGILE-OSGEO-workshop/   ). These kind of workshops have been very successful in outreach and education efforts for OSGeo.

Best wishes,


Dr Suchith Anand
