Dear Mr. Jody Garnett,

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am glad to hear that there are some of
members of OSGeo who we can meet.

If we cannot meet you in Boston, we would like you to introduce us some of
you member who are working in a companies in relation to Open Source.
It would be grateful to be introduced to be introduced to Open Source
related professional and have a short meeting for an introduction of how
they work with Open source and also have short Q&A session.

You can connect us with members of OSGeo or you can give us direct contact
information so we can contact them.

Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation and we look forward to
hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

오픈소스를 도입하거나 활용하고자 하는 10개 한국기업에서 15명 규모로 방문한다. 1주일간 FSF를 시작으로 레드햇 등 보스톤에 위치한
오픈소스 기업을 방문한다. 소개가 가능하다면 오픈소스를 잘 관리하고 있는 기업을 소개 받고 싶다. 간단한 세미나 또는 오픈소스 관리자와
면담을 통해 정보공유하는 시간을 가지고 싶다.
