UK OSGeo personalities,

Of late, the UK has been very prominent in OSGeo initiatives. You have 7
OSGeo Advocates, 2 board members (if you include Peter who has moved to the
USA), and are about to hold the FOSS4G 2013 conference.

As such, I'm hoping that over the next few days we will see profiles from
the majority of you on the OSGeo Advocate web page. (Thanks to those of you
already added). I see this page as a way to show the quality, and
geographic diversity of the OSGeo Community, and present us in a
professional and consistent manner. In doing so, we will be debunking the
myth that OSGeo is made up of "Hackers in Garages", and make it much easier
for organisations to trust, and then select OSGeo based systems.


Jo Walsh, can you please forward this email to the FOSS4G organising
