[Ottawa_users] October meeting

OK, the next "first Thursday in October" is tomorrow, and neither of  
the new chairs has done anything, but on the other hand, a number of  
our members are lucky enough to be in South Africa right now at the  
FOSS4G conference.  It runs through the 4th.

I'd really like to hear how the conference went, and propose our next  
meeting explore that topic - what was learned, what was new, where is  
the community going?  Would anybody there at the moment, or perhaps a  
tag-team of you, be willing to think about such things and then tell  
us about it when you get back?  This could be as structured (ha! well,  
I'll keep that there to be thorough) or informal as you like.

Assuming this idea has merit (alternative suggestions for a topic  
welcome, as always):  although next Thursday (the 9th) is one option,  
I will be out of town that week, and as selfish as it is, I'd really  
like to be there to hear from you.  How are the 16th and the 23rd for  

Let us know!
