Ned / Tyler,

I think it would be good to coordinate some presence at the twice annual
ESIP conference on behalf of OSGeo to brief the earth science community.
I know a number of us already attend these meetings from time to time
(such as Perry N., Allan Doyle, and myself).  This is a fairly technical
conference, but I'm sure we could present a paper on OSGeo technologies
and the earth sciences.  They have already have had a number of papers on
MapServer, GDAL/OGR, OPeNDAP and so forth, so they are reasonable aware
of some of the options.
