Ok, I'm happy to go back to Nat with the suggestion for more lightning 
talks for our specific projects, though I will have to eat my words a 
bit.  But we should have a person in mind to do each...

MapServer, MapGuide, GRASS, OSSIM, MapBender, etc. and even loosely associated ones like osgPlanet if we wanted more eye-candy as well.  And we could justify all of them as being "standards loving" too and not just under an OSGeo banner.
