Hi all,

I have been contacted by Niall Conway (GIS Professional magazine)  to see  if there are any interested  contributor(s) who would like to share written updates on the latest developments in open source geo which will be of interest to the wider geospatial community?  They are looking  to include a section which is dedicated to opensource news and updates to ensure that the magazine content is as balanced as possible. 
I think it is a great idea to have a balanced content coverage including also the developments in open source geo.  If anyone is interested to volunteer to share written updates including coverage of major events and conferences such as FOSS4G, software updates and partnerships within the broader geospatial field etc please contact Niall (Email - conwayniall at gmail.com )  . This role would particularly suit someone who enjoys writing on a range of new subjects and wishes to develop a profile in the industry. 

Best wishes,


PS: I remember Mike Saunt (Astun Technologies) used to write a column on open source geospatial developments for one of the GIS Industry publications. He published  the summary  from a first small meeting (less than 10 people including Tyler, Jo and me!) that OSGeo had in  the UK on the sidelines of another event around 10 years back!   But I could not find the article now . If anyone has pdf copy of  that article (or the url) could you please send me. Thanks.
