And we could justify all of them as being "standards loving" too and not just under an OSGeo banner.

GRASS already has a 15 minutes slot...  Maybe I could write back that 
we'd like a couple more lightning talks, alongside a WorldWind lightning

Yeah, I do...

Though in this case I thought I was doing viscomm, checking in with 
board.  I think it's harder when we all wear too many hats...  Though 
yeah, so far only those who also wear a board hat seem quick to make 
decisions, when I'd prefer that say mpg could confidently say yes to the 
GeoWeb organizers that he could do an OSGeo talk...
