(Autodesk rocks.)

Who is Dave? Our own Dave McI, or..?

  Autodesk will be donating the benefits of sponsoring the GeoWeb
conference (Vancouver July 24-28) to OSGeo.

  We've been contacted by the conference organizers, who want to
issue a press release on Autodesk's involvement and sponsorship.

  We'd like to suggest that they shift the spotlight a bit to
shine on OSGeo instead, and have the release talk about OSGeo
involvement and sponsorship. I've suggested that they get a quote from
Dave, who I believe will be speaking there.

  I see this as a good way to get some free publicity for OSGeo.

  Make sense? Any objections?
