Thanks to all of you who came and supported OSGIS. It was excellent to
see you all and very inspiring to listen to various presentations. It
just highlights the breadth of activities happening. We need to build
upon the momentum generated.
We are working to have all recorded presentations made available online
hopefully by next week.
Jo, will try to move the date from June 22nd for next year's ;-) It
mainly depends on the logistics of getting all the labs as well as
lecture theatres available on the same time.
Thanks again for all of your support and best wishes,

different perspectives on what happened, posted to this list. I would
also be fascinated to hear more about re-applying the gvSIG model for
sustainability to other projects including - especially - OpenStreetmap.
One thread that came up a few times during #osgis wss getting a bigger
open source profile through AGI events - but explicitly positioning
this as for business sustainability rather than being shoved into a
I heard very positive noises from Scottish Government people after
doing an OSGeo talk at AGI Scotland a couple of months ago. We could
talk with them about putting on a workshop in Scotland oriented to
government work, supporting local authority GIS people to attend etc.
Ask the Welsh Assembly people along.
I was so glad to get the chance to talk properly with Jo Cook and
think about an OSGeo book for kids. I was introduced to an ex-ESRI
technical author by Iain McKay at the Scottish Improvement Service.
One could *attempt* to apply to the Foundation to have a technical
editor work over a community-patched-together-from-wiki book.
Looking forward to next years (but can we not have it on June 22nd
