I had a brief email conversation yesterday and my debate is turning this into more of an OSGEO Meetup group. The discussion jumped around “chapter” and “official” and in the end it was decided to just run with a meetup for a while and see what happens. It’s all in the advertising – and I think “OSGEO” has more gravitas than “QGIS”. Not that I’m abandoning the QGIS Group by any means – it just widens the noise a bit with what I can do vs. focusing on 1 piece of software.
Anyway – watch for more info coming shortly. We’re two weeks out from the conference. I’m doing two talks and one workshop. Prepare for more noise on the workshop also as it gets “opened” as somewhat of a pattern for a Mapping Party type of event…for GIS People.
