What about an article on the theme that includes web sites relevant to
the conference topics e.g.


Millennium development goals : http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/ ,

Participatory GIS: http://www.ppgis.net/ , http://www.ppgis.info/ ,

Open Source Health Care Alliance:  http://www.oshca.org/ ,
http://www.openhealth.org/ ,


We can almost start the conference before it begins, which will
hopefully get people thinking about the theme and wanting to come.  We
could also send the list to EIS Africa and other lists for external
encouragement.  Perhaps we could put it on the conference web site and
ask people to add to it.  Somone will need to check them.  I will be
compiling a newsletter to GISSA members shortly and could include the
list in that.

Subject: [Foss4g2008loc] articles for PositionIT


We have been offered a page of articles in the next three editions of
PositionIT leading up to FOSS4G.


Please consider writing a short promotional article on any aspect of the
conference that interests you: the topics, the academic track, the
outreach programme, the idea of debating FOSS and proprietary, etc.


The first deadline is this Friday 14th. If you don't make that it can
queue up for the next edition. Send any material to me and I'll forward
to the publishers.
