big +1 for Ben from me as well.
I have been working now for some years with Ben on the WorldMap and
Hypermap projects and I am always delighted by his extensive knowledge
of the open source stack used in these projects. He was greatly
involved in the GeoNode project since its origins.
He is a big advocate of geospatial open source software here at the
Harvard University and in the Boston area geospatial community, and he
is a regular speaker at OSGeo conferences. As mentioned by Andy, he
also put a lot of effort to organize the latest FOSS4G conference in
