Nod; i really like this narrative; i think it tells most of the story
really well; it could be linking through to the project pages and
connecting from those to project lists, trackers etc...  

The 'how i can help OSGeo' aspect - i would like this to comprise
links to the committee pages - a quick overview of 'what this group of 
people are doing and what they are focused on' and then each committee
(chair) is responsible for producing 'how can you help us' section.

I think that cholmes has some of the most convincing narrative on this
subject that i've heard. A couple of pointers:
(see also http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Location_Intelligence )

This is a doc that Chris and Ned Horning did a lot of writing on.
Maybe it's a lot more data-oriented than it is software-oriented and
not so relevant to this - i think you could strengthen the interop.
point from this, though. 

Keep it up! More to follow RSN...
