Bobby H. Braswell Complex Systems Research Center OpenLayers, MapServer, and GDAL/OGR user (43.056, -70.775) I am a researcher at the University of New Hampshire, USA
Chris Holmes The Open Planning Project, GeoServer Incubator, Board, GeoTools (40.72,-74.00) I come from the Java side of the OSGeo fence, getting my start in GeoServer, where I was lead developer for a couple years, and GeoTools, where I still serve on the PMC. My time is made possible by The Open Planning Project (TOPP), a great non-profit in New York that has been the lead supporter of GeoServer for years now. I spent the last year in Zambia on a Fulbright Scholarship, looking at the potential for open source software to help implement spatial data infrastructures in developing countries. It was a bit of a failure, but I learned a ton, and I see a lot of potential for open source in developing countries, towards truly open spatial data infrastructures. I'm back at TOPP, in a new role as VP of Strategic Development, helping to grow the organization, and figuring out how to make our geospatial stuff self sustaining. Once that's rolling, I hope to reinvest extra revenue in to figuring out and building a truly open geospatial web. And just like apache and linux are the bedrock that the World Wide Web rests on, so too do I believe that the geospatial web necessarily must be built on a foundation of OS Geo software. My continuing thoughts on all of this can be found at
Michael P. Gerlek LizardTech Promotion and Visibility Committee (chair) (47.673166,-122.530143) Manager of LizardTech's Engineering department, where we do MrSID and JPEG 2000 stuff and play with with the next generation of technologies for supporting raster data GIS workflows. No, our products are not open source -- but we do very much support and use open source and open standards. (I think there is room in the world for both the open and closed development models, and I have a strong interest in helping "closed" companies understand the value of, and contribute to, the open software world.)

V.RaviKumar Geologist OSGeo member [1],[GRASS Indian exmple] 17° N 79° E A Geologist from India who is interested in FOSS software. GRASS in particular. Conducted a FOSS workshop at Hyderabad, India in May 2005. The workshop boosted our spirits with a large participation and good articles on various FOSS software. An entire session was for GRASS, Qgis software. Presently lecturing in various forums on the capability of GRASS and allied FOSS GIS. With the help of Free Software Foundation India, trying to spread awareness of GRASS GIS, GNU-Linux and FOSS. Countries like India have a lot to gain with the spread of FOSS.
David Hastings UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok Member of original Grass Interagency Steering Committee, etc. 13.75°N 100.5°E A physicist/geophysicist/geological engineer who has used GRASS since 1987, and on the GRASS Interagency Steering Committee for the original public-domain package. I wrote the Linux Mini-HOWTO on GRASS-GIS (which is now woefully out of date); and taught short courses in scientific (as opposed to cartographic) GIS since 1980. In 1994 I moved my teaching to the Web, developing the CyberInstitute Short-Course on GIS. Currently, I'm at UN ESCAP. Open-Source is a great capacity- building environment for software communities worldwide. In developing countries, rather than being stuck merely teaching people to cut and paste stuff within a proprietary office suite, you can be part of the full development team, customizing the software to your community's needs, helping your country to have its own software development community - and hopefully making a satisfying living in the process.

I focus especially on the data sharing within the United Nations system and in countries under development. I promote free and open source software as an excellent option for more sustainable development in these countries, proving it works by applying and further developing it in my day to day work. OpenSDI is a forum to discuss foss and cots integration.
