Discussion about GIS In Action

Discuss when we have the Open Source Un-Conference and when to have it. We decided that Saturday was out because we tend to get less of a crowd and it was pretty far from the actual event. We decided that we would have it either on Monday or Thursday. We are looking for some volunteers to help make this happen. Percy is doing his Doctorate (Congrats Percy) and cannot put in the time that he has in the past.

Darrel posted the Monday, Thursday question to our brothers up at CUGOS to get their input we would like them to join us if possible
