All done!

Brian did a great job covering the booth a lot and answering questions 
knowledgeably and cheerfully.

We both talked to press folks who were interested in the geospatial 
stuff. I updated the wiki today.

There is renewed interest in a local OSGEO chapter, I think I have a 
host for it, Opensourcery, which I think will be a more fun/casual place 
to host than the meetings we used to have at PSU (2005?). I'll be 
talking to Brian Jamison more about it in the next few weeks...

Let me know where to send the banner and table skirt!
