Sincere thank you to the whole gang at AIT, who graciously hosted 
FOSS4G-Asia in 2014 (http://www.foss4g-asia.org/2014/), and especially 
our good friend Sarawut, OSGeo charter member and leader, who we all met 
at FOSS4G 2004.  The love and kindness of OSGeo-Thailand is felt 
throughout the entire FOSS4G community.
