Turn that frown upside down, and use the GIS Day as an excuse to get out
into your community and share your passion for geography/FOSS4G that day.

I did see several negative tweets yesterday questioning the purpose of
the day - use the day for your own purpose.  Instead of that negativity,
channel positive FOSS4G vibes on the day to your local community.  Get
out to your local college/university/highschool and show them that
FOSS4G is fun.

(I realize my words are useless now, but maybe this will ignite a fire
in your head for next year)

Your friend,
