(Autodesk rocks.)
Who is Dave?  Our own Dave McI, or..?

	Autodesk will be donating the benefits of sponsoring the GeoWeb
conference (Vancouver July 24-28) to OSGeo.  


	We've been contacted by the conference organizers, who want to
issue a press release on Autodesk's involvement and sponsorship. 


	We'd like to suggest that they shift the spotlight a bit to
shine on OSGeo instead, and have the release talk about OSGeo
involvement and sponsorship.  I've suggested that they get a quote from
Dave, who I believe will be speaking there.


	I see this as a good way to get some free publicity for OSGeo.


	Make sense?  Any objections?
