This is the latest with Nat, I think it completely matches our thinking.

09:45am [15m] Open Source Mashups, Chris to provide participants [VEE]
10:00am [15m] Best Geo Hacks of the Last 2,000 Years, Chris Spurgeon 
[CONFIRMED] [9315]

10:15am [45m] Morning Break

11:00am [15m] Gary Lang [CONFIRMED] [9181]
11:15am [15m] Open Source Lightning Talks
     GDAL - Frank Warmerdam [VEE]

The two tbd in Open Source Lightning will be OSSIM and MapGuide.

Arnulf and MapBender will go with me (and GeoServer, and probably one 
other) in Open Source Mashups.  I think we were talking of using 
MapBender to do digitizing, so it'd use MapServer too.  And we want to 
mention MapBuilder as well, since MapBender has plans to merge at some 

Then in the BOF we'll have Dave talk about MapServer.  I'm also going to 
see if I can get Brent, the GeoServer developer talking in my stead, to 
do a little bit on GeoTools and MapBuilder at the BOF, as he's worked on 

So every project should have some sort of spot, either in the main 
session or at the BOF.  Arnulf and Brent and I will coordinate the open 
source mashups session, and ideally we'll try to incorporate a lot of 
projects.  Indeed if we do GeoServer and MapServer will be sure to 
include that neither would be possible without GeoTools and GDAL/OGR, 

> Anything that doesn't make it up on the main stage, will have the opportunity to do a ~5 min talk during the BOF event.  That's how I'm handling the BOF anyway and why the set of speakers during the rest of the conference needs to be confirmed before I flesh out the BOF.  Make sense? :)
