Great Suchith!

(All): I'm keeping a list of yes responses and then will organize the 
time for the call based on those participants and create an agenda for 
the call.
Basically I see three reasons for the conference call everyone: (1) to 
introduce people to each other who are deeply interested in 
OSGeo-related education; (2) to generate a set of group goals and 
associated to-do items; and (3) to identify people who would be willing 
to take a leadership role undertaking those tasks.

For university faculty who are on this list (especially newer faculty) 
-- perhaps an obvious point related to why you might consider taking 
part in our collective work. This kind of contribution/participation (at 
least at US institutions, but probably elsewhere as well) can be 
considered a useful "disciplinary service" contribution that you can put 
on your annual faculty activity reports... plus, it's another way of 
making your related work known to an international community.

More soon!
