Thanks to all the participants for their preparation efforts and time!

This event is a part of a larger global event called "World Commons Week
<https://wcw2019.iasc-commons.org/>" which hopefully is helping to draw
attention to GeoForAll and OSGeo from others who may not know about these
communities.  And hopefully, this is the start of perhaps more regular
cross-GeoForAll lab dialog using virtual conferencing technology that will
reduce our community's carbon footprint on the global atmospheric commons.
In other words, perhaps the start of something like a FOSS4G conference
that complements -- not replaces -- the in-person event, but takes
advantage of our global access to webinar technology to allow more frequent
community interaction.
