Yeah, I was going to give instructions on how to submit bios and all 
once we figured out who was going when.  You can also just send me the 
bio's and contact info.  Vee will likely have you still submit on their 

There should be room for Sean on the agenda, we have 2-3 lightning slots.

Since Dave just responded that he's willing to go BOF with MapServer, 
and I'm assuming Arnulf and Mark were both interested in the main event, 
let's just go with that (unless anyone objects, wants some more fair way 
to do it).

So we'll have 1) 15 minute session with three lightning talks
1) Frank and GDAL
2) Sean and MapGuide
3) Mark and OSSIM

Then Arnulf will coordinate with us (geoserver) and WorldWind on a nice 
15 minutes integration session/demo.  Arnulf, would you have some time 
to coordinate with that?

GRASS has their own session.  The only ones out are MapBuilder and 
GeoTools, but we could probably convince Brent, the GeoServer developer 
I'm sending, who's done work on both GeoTools and MapBuilder, to at 
least say a few words at the BOF.

I'll send Vee their contact info, and she can likely follow up with 
instructions on how to do the bio.
