Hi All,

Thanks to all who attended the first geo-centric Cleveland Civic Hacking event.  Lots of good ideas and plans for future trainings, lightning talks, hack events, and more.  Stay tuned for the next date, approximately 2-months from the last.

In the mean time, weigh in on group name (there's a poll), submit comments and reviews.  It sounds like there's plenty of interest in OpenStreetMap as well as Open Source desktop and web, so we'll pick two.

By the way, apropos of the topic, we did visit the Map Room afterward for drinks and continued to geek out on geospatial, so expect a similar post-geo-civic-hacking activity next time.

Thanks again, and we'll have more details soon... .

Best,

Steve
