Great reports from Adrian and Carlos.

Overall a really awesome event.  Roughly 200 attendees, and most
attended the workshops.  Think back to the days of early FOSS4G, and the
passion, the sharing, and the relationships forming.  The vision of
Mauricio (chair) and the whole local committee was exactly what FOSS4G
is all about.

There's already some talk of next year's options for an event.
Wonderful news.

And I won't miss it.


PS.  I propose that Mauri be added right away to the OSGeo Conference
Committee, so when he recovers, he can share his vision with everyone.
