Hi George,
I'm not sure if Andrea Ross (CCed) has been included in your 
conversations to date? She coordinates LocationTech, the geospatial arm 
of the Eclipse Foundation. I suspect you will find her both interested 
and valuable in progressing your goals.

I do like your goals of collaborating between open source organisations 
related to geospatial. This happens to be at the core of both the OSGeo 
Foundation and LocationTech as well.

With regards to a summary of Open Source Geospatial, I suggest looking 
at the OSGeo-Live presentation (with script):
It aims to be a lightening FOSS4G conference, covered in a 30 min 
I'll leave it to you to distill further down to a one minute slide. :)
(You are free to copy or change the material as you see fit)

Warm regards, Cameron
