Maybe geocamp2009 can be held in two parts... The talks at Algonquin and
the lab portion somewhere else... maybe somewhere there is already a
FOSS4G lab setup... This might get peoples attention pretty quick... but
the logistical nightmare might be off too..
It sound like the live CD route would be our best bet... 
Maybe even an install party for some FOss4G stuff...

	To bring Open Source concept and solution into campuses is very
challenging given that some companies have provided their products
almost for free as part of their business model. I was teaching GIS
programming in Algonquin one time and tried to introduce students the
Mapserver and WPS solution. Some of the students were very happy to
learn about those. However the organization was quite negative towards
Open Source idea. Anyway, good luck on this!

	I am interested in it, definitely. I would also be interested in
tying it in with my GIS program here. That's something I will have to
discuss with some of my teachers though. I may not be able to put a lot
of work into this, simply because of my school work, but I will be able
to put in some.
