Great timing, I have just finished collecting those ideas for the
website/rebranding push.

*Open Geospatial*

OSGeo is pleased to be at the forefront of the shift towards open

   - Open Source: securing a collaborative approach to software development.
      - Open Data: providing freely available information to use as you
      - Open Standards: enabling interoperable software to avoid lock-in.
      - Open Education: removing the barriers to learning and teaching.

Together these approaches define a new way of addressing the world's needs.
OSGeo is pleased to celebrate our partners and friends shaping this future.

(Insert partner logos here, and friends such as OSM)

I hope that helps? I like that we are hitting the same ideas / concepts.
