I’ve posted a summary, including remarks from one of the twenty-five people at the meeting held on Saturday in Chicago, over at Directions Magazine. I’ll add my voice to those impressed with how well the meeting was run, and what was accomplished. Full steam ahead for OsGeo!

GeoMullah (who I do not know) shares his take on the ESRI Federal User Conference in his blog. Thanks for sharing!

Definitely worth reading; I’ll highlight these bits:

Ed Parsons and Ordinance Survey will find this flattering; Jack Dangermond, owner of ESRI, noted that he had just visited OS and that they have a wonderfully working national GIS.

Former Senator Bob Kerry, president of the New School in New York City, did have some interesting things to say. One was that “they’ll stop using Google Maps for their visualization research projects and definitely use ESRI products.” This sounded like a paid advertisement.

[Response efforts to Hurricane Katrina, with]... coordinated efforts could have save over $12 million if we coordinated search efforts, producing the same information, and had just collaborated more.
