  • State of the Map will be in Denver too! Dates are still to be confirmed but the most likely option is the weekend before FOSS4G. We want to co-operate as appropriate, but also be conscious that the two events are distinct and will be organized largely independently. FOSS4G is the larger event and State of the Map doesn't want to be "taken over" by FOSS4G and we respect that. We will have further conversations between the two groups about what it makes sense to coordinate and what we should do independently. But overall there has been a very positive reaction to having the two events back to back.
  • Jeff said that he knew somebody from the US Army Corps of Engineers who was interested in helping organize a Federal track (Joel Schlagel). Jeff will follow up and connect Joel with Peter.
  • Other additions to the LOC: Matt Ball of vector1media has volunteered to join, as has Dave Harris of Ubisense.
